Since this note was written, AB-3034 was signed by the Governor and became law. The Nov 4th ballot will have the new bond measure designated as Prop 1A. The old Prop 1 has been removed. Voter information for Prop 1A will be contained in a supplemental pamphlet, which will cost the state an additional 4 million dollars to print. Thus the efficiency of our legislature.

For those interested in getting an advanced look at what is going to appear on the ballot, you can go to:

The Menlo Park study session will start at either 5:00 or 5:30 PM in council chambers on Sept 9th. It should be a good discussion of High Speed Rail and how this project will in particular affect Menlo Park ,Atherton and other peninsula cities.

Speaking against the project will be Dan McNamara, who has worked on rail projects and High Speed Projects for many years, and is extremely knowledgeable. There is supposed to be a full hour reserved for public comment. I urge everyone to attend.
