EDITORIAL: Thumbs up, thumbs down

Thumbs down to Fresno City Council Members Lee Brand, Paul Caprioglio and Clint Olivier for opposing the acceptance of $1 million in grant money for a master plan to maximize the value of a high-speed rail station in downtown. Their votes were sufficient to reject the grant. This was yet another example of local leaders living in the past and genuflecting to Republican/tea party talking points.
