We have suffered through a subway boondoggle, a union terminal boondoggle, a riverfront transit center boondoggle, and now a streetcar boondoggle. City leaders, past and present, for nearly a century now, have eagerly embraced the latest passenger rail transportation fads. They invariably blow it, sticking the city with a useless white elephant, and decades of debt.
Taxpayers are fed up, and are no longer willing to stand idly by, watching city leaders flush their hard-earned dollars down the latest rathole. Citizens are desperately seeking a way to veto this ridiculous trolley plan. COAST and its partners have delivered a charter amendment which will do just that. Mayor Mallory says so.
Kill the streetcar!
Vote 'Yes' on the passenger rail transportation charter amendment.
