Opponents of All Aboard Florida had what they called an “open and candid” meeting with top transportation officials from Gov. Rick Scott’s administration, reports TCPalm.

CARE FL (an acronym for Citizens Against Rail Expansion in Florida) represents the upscale gated communities of Mariner Sands Country Club and Loblolly in Martin County; Jonathan’s Landing, The Club at Admiral’s Cove and Frenchman’s Creek Beach and Country Club in Palm Beach County; and the Maritime Industries Association of Palm Beach County.

The meeting with administration officials also included CARE leaders Brent Hanlon and Tom Hewitt, and Stephen Ryan, CARE’s Washington-based attorney.
