ReVote the Rail Changed

The past effort to stop the current High Speed Rail project in California has been sidelined. Those folks have joined the effort of these folks to do the same thing: Put the High Speed Rail project, passed by voters back in 2008, back on the ballot.

If you'd like to help, you can fill out their volunteer form. There's a link there to order petitions, too. Even if you and some friends sign the petition and send it in it can help, so don't be shy about signing up.

As an aside, I'm not one who takes recalls lightly, but I think Governor Brown should face one over his dogged insistence on pursuing HSR when the state is floundering in deficit with no end in sight.

ReVote also has a Facebook page you can Like.

So... you want our governor to ignore the expressed will of the people? That's usually what elected representatives get recalled for -- not representing us. Your post is dripping with hypocrisy.

Nope. If you knew anything about this, which you obviously don't, you'd know the HSR proposal now isn't the same as was originally outlined in Prop 1a. Also, the estimated cost of the project exploded to over 100 billion dollars after it was voted in- not what people had voted for.

Polls show not that two thirds or more of the electorate would like to vote again on the project, with most now opposing it.
