Erica Barnett sums up the choice faced in November:

Since transit projects in our region historically have not come back to the ballot a second time larger than the first, this is probably our only chance to get as much light rail as this package offers.

Additionally, of the $7B marked for roads, you can mark either 70 or 85 percent of them as “good”, since they facilitate high-occupancy or freight travel. Sounds good to me!
