Although Texas Central Partner President Tim Keith claims his Options Program has had great results in obtaining options on more than 50 percent of the land it needs through Grimes for its planned high-speed rail, County Judge Ben Lehman doesn’t buy it.
Lehman says it’s more like something out of The Godfather, in that those so-called “options” are being obtained by falsly claiming TCP has already been granted the right of Imminent Domain.
Lehman says these claims are nothing but a Hail-Mary play on TCP’s part, after recently abandoning all their lawsuits claiming their right of Imminent Domain in Texas.
And despite claims by Keith the Trump Administration will help the project out, Lehman doesn’t think that will fly, either. He tells Navasota News he is “100 percent” confident that President Trump will not support this project because he will see it for what it is. He will see all of the false negatives it is claiming, and that will be the end of any Federal help there.
