The Palm Beach Post: All Aboard Florida opponent takes aim at text messages about bond meeting

Posted on July 29, 2015

An attorney fighting the All Aboard Florida project is taking aim at a series of text messages between a representative of the rail company and the chairman of the state board that will decide whether the project receives $1.75 billion in tax exempt bonds.

The text messages show a series of conversations between Florida Development Finance Corp.

Chairman Frank White and All Aboard Florida consultant Matt Mohler. Steve Ryan, a Washington, D.C.-based attorney who is representing Martin County in its battle to block All Aboard Florida’s express passenger trains, obtained the text messages through a public records request.

“This has got to be an enormous concern,” Ryan said of the messages. “All Aboard Florida appears to be talking to the decision makers of the FDFC. They seem to be very close to one another.”
