This is the item to break our months-long silence: Jackson County CEO Mike Sanders will present his Regional Rail Plan to the Central Exchange on Jan. 26. Members attend for free, non-members pay $30. And yes, men are very much welcome to attend.
We haven’t heard a peep out of Sanders since he unveiled his plan to a surprised media way back in October. It was well over a month before any information even appeared on the Jackson County website (don’t let that date stamp fool you). The description for next week’s event still maintains that stimulus money is being sought to pay for construction, even though all stimulus deadlines related to transit have already passed and it’s not a given that a new jobs bill will include transit funding (assuming such a bill even passes, considering the results of this week’s special election in Massachusetts).3 comments
