Many of you have asked 'what else can I do to help Save the Train in Wisconsin?' Well, here is your chance.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is holding a series of public hearings around the state in the next week, and these hearings could make or break the future of high speed rail in Wisconsin.
This is our chance to stand together and send a message loud and clear to our public leaders that Wisconsin supports high speed rail.
The meetings will run from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and will take place in the following cities over the next week:
Tuesday, Nov. 30 in La Crosse at the Best Western Riverfront Hotel, 1835 Rose St.
Wednesday, Dec. 1 in Eau Claire at the Best Western Trail Lodge Hotel, 3340 Mondovi Road
Thursday, Dec. 2 in Fond du Lac at UW-Fond du Lac
Tuesday, Dec. 7 in Madison at the WisDOT Southwest Region Office, 2101 Wright Street
We want the 13,000 jobs and the billions in economic development this project will create to stay in Wisconsin, and state officials have said these hearings are going to have a big impact in deciding the future of the project.
I hope you can make it to one of the hearings, and bring a friend with you! The more supporters of high speed rail we can turn out, the harder it will be to ignore our voices.
If you can't attend one of the hearings, you can still make your voice heard by signing our 'Save the Train' letter to Governor-elect Scott Walker at https://secure3.convio.net/pn/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=576.
Thanks for all you have done, let's Save the Train!
