Nannini criticized city leaders spending money for light rail and a proposed streetcar route that would go from Eastland Mall to the Rosa Parks Transit Station on Beatties Ford Road. The City Council recently voted to spend $8 million for an engineering study of the project, which is expected to cost about $373 million.
“It will bankrupt the city,” Nannini said.
