    Excellent article. If voters understood what an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars these rail projects are, they would VOTE OUT of office those elected officials working against voters and pushing rail. In Tarrant County our major rail pushers are County Judge, Glen Whitley and County Commissioner Gary Fickes. On Colleyville City Council, Mike Taylor is pushing rail.

    PLEASE ask our state rep, Giovanni Capriglione what he is doing to help stop TEX Rail. He ran saying he would help us stop TEX Rail but we have not heard from him recently on this issue.

    Many thanks to Konni Burton for being a taxpayer hero and working to stop this boondoggle.

    Voters, YOU hold the power to stop this by holding your elected officials accountable.
    PLEASE start calling and emailing them.
