The duplicitous message that the High Speed Rail (now called “High Performance Rail” because it fails to meet the promised voter approved standards) heavy maintenance facility would deliver high paying jobs to 1,500 Madera County residents has been the Pablum spoon fed to all of us by certain “progressive” quarters of our own county government.
