Dan Richard: Merging the Dream and Reality of High Speed Rail
Chairman, California High Speed Rail Authority
After telling Governor Jerry Brown that California’s high-speed rail plan was “really screwed up and going to end up biting you in the ankles,” Richard was appointed by Brown to be chairman of California’s High Speed Rail Authority in February 2012. Richard will discuss the potential for high-speed rail to transform the future of California’s Central Valley by connecting it to major urban centers, revitalizing city cores, and reducing suburban sprawl’s encroachment on agriculture.
