    The fact that Galgiani wrote the misleading and ill-conceived HSR bond measure (which basically promised something for nothing so voters would pass it), and that she is proud of it is reason enough for me to argue that she shouldn't get re-elected. It is in part thanks to her that we have already spent three-quarters of a billion dollars on what has turned out to be a lie. And now it is pretty apparent this is no longer about building HSR, and has instead become a money grab for what little federal money sits out there, as a voter and taxpayer, I am really angry and I am not alone.
