UPDATED: 6,000 Have Signed ‘Save the Train’ Letter to Walker, Have You?

The money cannot be spent on roads, no matter how badly Walker wants to "thank" his buddies at the road builder's lobby.

Wow, what a response! Almost 2,500 6,000 Wisconsinites have signed our letter to Governor-elect Scott Walker urging him to reconsider his opposition to the high speed rail project.

We’re going to deliver the letter to Walker with the signers this week, so if you haven’t signed yet, do it now!

Long-time One WI Now intern and superb voice-over talent Willie Barnes put together this amazing video about the benefits high speed rail will bring to Wisconsin. The video also highlights the bigger picture — that the Wisconsin project is just a small portion of a Midwest hub and long-term plan for an improved national transportation network.

Wisconsin needs jobs and the rail line will create them, either here or in another state. The money cannot be spent on roads, no matter how badly Walker wants to “thank” his buddies at the road builder’s lobby.

Make your voice heard and help save the train. We’re going to deliver all the signatures to Walker’s transition office next week, so time is running out! Head over to the letter page and add your name right now. Thanks!
