Congressional candidate Brian Mast has released a new digital ad pledging opposition to All Aboard Florida, the passenger rail project that would connect Miami to Orlando with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
“Brian is 100 percent against All Aboard Florida, and will do everything he can to stop it when elected to Congress,” a Mast campaign press release stated. “It will disrupt our way of life, lower property values and endanger our children.”
Supporters of the project argue the effects will be just the opposite, but Mast fires away at it in the ad.
“I’ll fight to make sure that All Aboard Florida doesn’t happen to the citizens of our counties,” he said.
Mast’s opponent, Randy Perkins, is also opposed to All Aboard Florida, citing many of the same reasons as Mast.
