Rally for trains this Saturday!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

On Saturday, join the Sierra Club and local leaders to urge Governor-elect Scott Walker to continue construction to restore train service to Madison. This will create thousands of jobs, increase travel choices to Milwaukee, take 500,000 cars off of the road, and reduce greenhouse air pollution by 418 million pounds. Or will we give $810 million in federal grant funding to Illinois, lose at least 5,000 jobs for Wisconsin workers, and continue our dependence on dirty big oil?

12:00 Noon
Rally at the Wilson Street Surface Lot, 400 S. Hancock St.

Speakers include:
Bob Lien, Owner, Lien Tech Inc, Steel Fabricator, Stoughton;
Chris Klein or Dave Cieslewicz, Mayor’s office, invited;
Rep. Mark Pocan, AD 78;
Scott Ross, Director, One Wisconsin Now;
Steve Hiniker, Director, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin.
