Mark Gruberg of the United Taxicab Workers Proposal

Sorry for the shadow on this shot. It's not symbolic. I don't mean to imply that Mark has a doppleganger or evil twin. Simply didn't have a diffuser on the flash.

For me, the most interesting thing about Mark's proposal is that he changed his position from the days when we were putting the Pilot Plan together. He was against any medallion sales at the time and even sued the MTA over the issue. But he lost and has shown rare common sense in accepting the reality of medallion sales and using it a jumping off point for a fresh look at the industry.

His plan is the most carefully worked out and thorough of the proposals that I've seen. It certainly has the longest title.
