LARGE CROWD OPPOSES METRO FUNDING


I will miss the Sheriff's briefing but will have an aide there. I will be attending a Board of Supervisors Work Session on Rail to Dulles and Loudoun.

I was not at Wednesday's Lovettsville (in rural Loudoun)discussion about Metro. David LaRock tells me: there was an amazing show of anti-rail sentiments. The presentation revealed many of the serious flaws in the project, and the questions and comments that followed showed that those in attendance, about 75 people, mostly opposing Metro.

Even using the very low-ball Loudoun County-generated cost numbers, Metro is a tough sell.

Projections put anticipated revenue alongside Loudoun County's own incomplete cost projections and the bottom line is that Metro to Loudoun is an open-ended (blank check to Metro) proposition involving a forty million dollar annual payment for construction for six years and $20 million and more each year for operating without any idea how to finance $13 BILLION in identified repairs.

If Loudoun opts out, we still get metro to Dulles Airport with ZERO costs to the Loudoun taxpayer.
