Marin County: SMART plan needs financial review

They" are not reading these boards. "They" could care less about what Marin residents really feel. "They" are only concerned about their own wealth and power.  (Nov 9, 2010 | post #28)

Marin County: SMART plan needs financial review

People are just fooling themselves if they believe that the choo choo will ever be built. The intention from the beginning was that they would pass then tax measure and then float bonds against the projected future income so that they could all get rich through salaries, consulting fees, and pensions and by the time the public realized that the project was in fact infeasible they would disappear and the taxpayers would be on the hook for paying off the bonds. The only problem with their fraud was that they did not expect the bond market to tank when the mortgage crisis sunk the financial sector. Now they are forced to face reality and admit that their projections were a lie and that there is no way that they can deliver what they promised. These current 'press releases' are meant to grease the skids for another measure increasing or extending the tax. This scam was supported by politicians that a) were going to be included in the fraudulent fleecing of the taxpayers by being paid as board members and consultants, and who b) saw the potential income from the state and federal governments promoting TOD. Our politicians never once gave any concern to what was in the best interest of their constituents. This was a mistake from the beginning and lost elections until they a) created a special district so that Sonoma yes votes could offet Marin no votes, and b) they promised the bicycle coalition the moon to get their support (even though they had no intention on delivering). If this goes up for a revote it will certainly lose. Even if it doesn't it will never be built.  (Nov 9, 2010 | post #26)

We opponents clearly stated before the election that this boondoggle was a BILLION DOLLAR CHOO CHOO TRAIN TO NOWHERE. Well, we're seventy percent of the way to a billion with no end in sight. (and no bike path either!).  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #61)

Novato agrees to sales tax increase

the county registrar has only voted 12K votes for novato and the ij has an article stating that 40K ballots county wide have not been counted, many of them mail-in. this issue may not be resolved yet. if it does pass it only goes to further show that most people have no idea what they are voting for.  (Nov 3, 2010 | post #20)
