We local folks have been given scant meaningful input into the decisions to thrust a high-speed railroad through our midst. Bravo to the Davids who will stand up to Goliath (or the Terminator?).
The proposed rail system would do little or nothing to improve our lives, yet would impose a 100-yard-wide wasteland (often dauntingly elevated) down the center of the peninsula, tearing a swath through each community along the line. And this is to say nothing about environmental damage. I encourage voters to take a close look at the proposition submitted for the ballot in November. I'll vote "no," and thus say "bravo" to our local elected officials who have taken a stand against the juggernaut of the High Speed Rail Authority.
