Re: “Durham-Orange Light Rail Nears Next Step in Grant Process, Has No Guarantee of Federal Funding

The public should also keep in mind that the monthly cost for planning - right now - is huge. I've seen estimates that taxpayers are currently paying about $1,000,000.00 every month for planning and promoting the Durham-Orange Light Rail. If anyone has accurate numbers, please correct me.

Stop and think about what could be done with that money to improve transit, or education, or infrastructure, or health in our counties.

This whole project may never fly, in which case every cent that's being spent on it before ever moves into construction phase will be completely wasted. Every wasted cent will have come from the pockets of today's Durham and Orange taxpayers.
