The Proposition that offers to tax Livemore even more, by raising our sales tax by yet another half cent, to over 10%, has a fatal flaw: It is permanent. I might have been interested if it had had a 5 year "sunset" like other taxes, so voters could see whether it was being used properly, or even if it was still needed.
Depending on how it is actually used, it might give even more money to BARTD supposedly toward a Livermore station (NOT both stations, just one) but it goes on forever, and it does NOT cancel the existing taxes we are already paying.

If BART sells/gives away all the land that would be needed to extend BART down the median of i580, then they would be forced to build a BART station in downtown Livermore, which is what board of directors at BART wanted all along.

Forget what Livermore wants, or Pleasanton, or Dublin, or the commuters want. BART by hook or crook is going to build a high density transit village in downtown Livermore come hell or high water. I guess you could call the station Berkeley South :-)

Or "Mall Bangers South." Or "Soon to be Low Income Housing Paradise." Or "Obama's Folly." Or "BART to destitution under just one administration." Or "Acopalipse Any Day Now."
