"And when I was Mayor of Charlotte, I fought to bring a streetcar system to our city. The whole community got behind it. That streetcar is the first effort in Charlotte’s recent history to connect a poor part of the city with modern transit."
The proposed streetcar - dubbed the "Gold Line" - certainly has its proponents.

That was one reason Foxx's proposed capital plan didn't pass the first time around.
