Darien resident Jim Cameron, a longtime commuter advocate and Hearst Connecticut Media transportation columnist, will hold a question-and-answer session on Connecticut’s transportation crisis.
The event, which can be viewed on Zoom via the Ferguson Library in Stamford, will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Registration is required. Attendees can register via the Ferguson Library link here.
Cameron will examine questions like:
• Will riders return to commuter rail?
• Who will pay to keep the trains running?
• Where will money be found for Connecticut’s highways?
• How will new residential/workplace trends affect Connecticut’s economy?
Born and raised in Toronto, Cameron attended Lehigh University and then worked in broadcasting and journalism in Hartford, Boston and New York City. He is the recipient of a George Foster Peabody Award for his work at NBC News. In 1993, he joined the CT Metro-North Rail Commuter Council where he served 11 years as vice chairman and four years as chairman.
He is also author of a new book, “Off The Record: Confessions of a Media Consultant.”
