Introducing Streetsblog Contributor John Kaehny

jk.jpgIf you noticed an increase in the quality, depth and number of my Streetsblog posts in recent weeks, it's not because I suddenly got smarter or started working harder. Some of the savviest and most interesting items that we have published in recent days had my byline on them but were, in fact, ghost-written by John Kaehny, the former executive director of Transportation Alternatives.

Kaehny has worked on transportation and livable streets
policy for two decades, laying the groundwork for many of the policy changes currently underway in New York City. He is a great source of knowledge and
historical perspective on the issues we cover here. While I'm sad that I will no longer be slapping my name on his stories and looking like a genius because of it, the Streetsblog team is honored that John will now be listed as an official contributor.

Here are all of John Kaehny's Streetsblog contributions to date:
