EnlightenUp! Public Transit As Ministry?: Jack Swearengen

Starts at 7:00 pm

Location: Room 113

SMART (Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit) had just been approved by the voters when Swearengen assumed leadership of the advocacy group Friends of SMART. SMART is operating today; but obstacles abound. When the system struggles, so do its advocates. What keeps them going? Swearengen will describe the pathway he took to this calling, share experiences from his years as FoS Chair, delve into moral questions, and suggest a Biblical basis for public advocacy. Swearengen had a long and successful career as an engineering professor at Washington State University, Researcher and Manager at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque and Livermore, and Science Advisor to the Department of Defense in The Pentagon. He has been an advocate for public transportation since “retirement” in 2002.
