This is to inform those who are interested that I will not be running as a candidate for the Antioch City Council this year as I had considered and been encouraged to do.
Instead, I will remain focused on my business to bring to market a low-cost, ultra-light rail, electric transit system for the Bay Area communities without BART service, and elsewhere, as well as developing the transit villages surrounding the stations.
I will however, be supporting good, commonsense candidates for office and working to defeat the tax increases on the November ballot.
I appreciate the encouragement and offers of support from various individuals in Antioch, East County and beyond.
Allen Payton, Antioch
