Patel Commends Governor Scott on Proposed Private Rail
TAMPA – Aakash Patel, candidate for Hillsborough County Commission, commends Governor Scott for saving the taxpayers dollars on rail.
Governor Scott, who previously rejected $2.4 billion in federal funding for high-speed rail, announced recently a bid from private enterprise to build rail from Orlando to Tampa. The proposal is from Brightline, the company currently building rail from Miami to Orlando, opens up vast opportunity for commuters and tourists.
Patel commented, “Every day I hear from voters as I walk door to door and from businesses moving into Hillsborough County that we need expanded transportation options. I know that is a very important issue with our residents. I applaud Governor Scott for sticking to his conservative principals and waiting out the market for a private initiative on rail. This is a welcome compliment to travel options across our State and the Governor, by refusing to use tax dollars previously, has now encouraged private enterprise to carry the burden. This is a strong move for our regional transportation and I support private transportation initiatives”.
