Rob Arkley Speaks
I wish I could have been at this event. I would have enjoyed hearing what Rob had to say. Supposedly he suggested more "civility in politics...". Good for him.
I was pleased to see him once again step up to the plate and offer to pay for a study to determine the feasability and/ or practicality of getting the North Coast Railroad up and running again. Doesn't means he supports the NCRA, I think he just wants to look at whether it makes any sense to support it financially. Again, good for him.
But haven't such studies already been made? I suspect they have but people either arrived at different conclusions to the study, or, some folks feel the railroad should be rebuilt no matter what the cost and whether it makes sense or not. As I've said before, I am not one of the latter.
Along that line, the Times-Standard has an online poll up now asking just that question: Whether you think it's worth however many millions of dollars to rebuild the North Coast Railroad? So far, it looks like Yes is winning, strange as that seems to me. Cast your vote here. Poll should be on the right of the page.
