Around 250 Texas residents descended on the state capitol earlier this month in a Texans Against High-Speed Rail-funded effort to oppose Texas Central Rail’s proposed bullet train.
There were four buses in all, said Grimes County Precinct Two Commissioner David Dobyanski, departing from all along the project’s proposed corridor; one from Navasota, one from Waller, and one came from up around Fairfield, and the other one came up from around Ennis.
Dobyanski was among the approximately five dozen Grimes County Folks on the bus from Navasota, as was County Judge Ben Lehman.
He says the trip was to counter a massive publicity campaign Texas Central Rail has mounted and inform all Texas lawmakers of the hidden dangers those wanting the project built are trying to disregard. Information, Dobyanski says, like the recently completed Reasons Report that concludes that because of the demographics of Dallas and Houston this thing will never pay for itself, adding he doesn’t want the residents of Texas to have to bail it out when it fails.
Dobyanski urges everyone opposed to the project to keep reminding their state representatives of their views, as the issue is likely to be resolved before the current legislative session ends later this year.
