Editor,

How can we vote for Measure RR when the CEO is missing in action? Have we seen or heard from him? Where is he? Has he managed Caltrain to be a successful public service? Has he offered to reduce his $552,476 salary to help save his own train system? Has he shown the skill to manage a public transit system? He can afford a new tax, but can you? Something is very wrong here. Vote no on RR (AKA real ripoff)

Well written, Mr. Rossi. Let’s start by reducing the CEO’s salary. If that’s not enough, let’s reduce each Caltrain employee’s, actually, each government employee’s salaries, pensions and benefits. We can then see where we’re at. Vote NO on the real ripoff that is RR and any measures paying for salaries, pensions and benefits. Don’t worry, if you change your mind (and hopefully you never do), additional measures will show up every year in the future, probably for the rest of our lives.
