    Carroll is now broadcasting on the Internet at www.talk808.com.   Listen live on Sunday mornings, 9-11 a.m.   
    We want to hear from you.   Call 808-782-6627 to participate.

    Carroll and Rod Tam, former City Councilman and State Senator, talk about the rail project, the Federal Transportation Administration  (FTA), and the 44 million dollars "needed" by November 20 in order to secure federal funds.

    On October 26, 2018, the FTA sent a letter to HART (see attached)  and Mayor Caldwell (see attached)  regarding their expectations and asking for a commitment of where the additional 44 million dollars needed for rail is coming from.   But, per Rod Tam, Caldwell is using his own interpretation of "commitment" in order to issues bonds.   Tam goes on to explain,  FTA is only asking where HART is getting the money, and how they will be spending the additional 44 million, with a response by November 20, 2018.  

    Mayor Caldwell has introduced Bill 42, to fund the 44 million with city funds by immediately issuing bonds.   A public hearing is scheduled at City Hall on October 30, 2018, at  9 a.m. regarding the bonds.    Rod Tam maintains the FTA is not asking for the money by November 20, they are just asking for commitment and clarification  Tam says the bonds are not necessary, and are not the best way to fund the rail.

    Read Mayor Caldwell's press release saying the money must be immediately available so bonds may be issued and the process will be "transparent".   

    Carroll and Rod Tam discuss the issues and ask, "Where is the transparency?"   

    Next Carroll talks with a caller, Jack DeFeo, who says the 44 million issue is an intentionally confusing slight of hand and they are coming after our property taxes.   The caller says, there is no accountability and that is why we have the highest cost of living in the nation.   Carroll and DeFeo then  talk about the mayor's statements, the need for a HART audit, other rail problems, and politicians in general.
