Those ridiculous RailRunner ads

Needless to say, the RailRunner advertisements you are seeing are paid for by you, the taxpayers. Interestingly, the ads focus on the future of commuting in Albuquerque and show a bunch of kids saying how happy they are that their parents made the “investment” in the train. Ironically, it is those very same kids who are going to be stuck with the bill for the Rail Runner in about a decade when those balloon payments come due.
