There was an interesting article in a newspaper recently about BART wanting to put a tax on us for new cars. Why weren’t they factored into capital improvements?
Every meeting I have attended, Joel Keller has said the 40-plus years the people of Antioch and East County have paid into BART has gone into running the system, not building the system out to us. Now they say they need new cars so they want to tax us again. Who is lying to us?
It is more likely all the money we have paid into BART has gone for ridiculous wages, pensions and board member perks. I say: no more money until they stop lying to us and open up their books and show us where our money has gone.
