I love to see the illuminated completed rail stations especially at the defunct Stadium and abandoned Kam Drive Inn.  And to see the actual 10 year old rail cars being tested frogs and all.  And the tracks near the airport that lead to abrupt ends.Where is the leadership and planning?

The longer this failure is allowed to fester the more it will drag down the community as a whole.  The city council and mayor need to make the hard decision now, rather than continue to string along tax payers while looking for other sources of funding (like the new county hotel tax) for the rusty rail bucket.

Could have bought every driver on the West side self-driving Tesla and still be ahead… ($80K x 120,000 drivers = $9.6B)
