Union Campaign Calls for Mary Peters’ Ouster
We didn’t do it.
A web site demanding that US Transportation Secretary Mary Peters lose her post — www.firemarypeters.com — is a project of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Angry about the Bush administration’s plan to allow trucks from Mexico across the border, the labor org launched the "Fire Mary Peters" campaign last month.
Though Peters took heat from Streetsbloggers last year for claiming that bikes "are not transportation," her department also chose New York as one of five cities to share in a $1.1 billion earmark for congestion pricing projects.
