FPV Board Member Testifies!

FPV recommends you listen to the statements below by folks in the Valley concerned about High Speed Rail.  The problem is that this project was sold under the concept that HSR would use existing corridors and preserve farm land. Instead, they have abandoned that principle, and now HSR proponents are upset that farmers and smaller cities such as Madera are concerned about the effects of HSR.

What would be refreshing is if the most vocal of the proponents, especially some of those representing the City of Fresno interests, would get on board and demand that HSR do this project as promised instead of throwing their fellow Valley citizens and cities under the train.
