The Tampa Bay Partnership (TBP), the structural head of the rail cartel, is an exclusionary organization: "Membership is by invitation only." TBP's privileged members, who reside in their exclusive groupthink bubble, have been unsuccessfully pushing massive rail tax boondoggles for decades.
Council of Governors members included Jeff Vinik and Chuck Sykes. Vinik was AFT's largest donor and [new baseball stadium] Sykes helped fund and lead the 2010 rail tax boondoggle that was overwhelmingly defeated.
Homans responded to my question with "the Partnership analyzed the amendment through its own process and, ultimately, relied on the expertise of the professionals who drafted the language."
The privileged rail cartel elitists will spend millions between now and November 8th lying to voters about their $18 BILLION inflationary rail tax - that benefits them.
Anyone who would like to help in the fight against the rail cartel and their rail tax do-over can donate to the formal opposition PAC NOTAXFORTRACKS (NTFT) here.
