Letter: Contract with Progressive Rail a win-win-win for all

Letter: Contract with Progressive Rail a win-win-win for all

Thanks to the Regional Transportation Commissioners for voting to approve the contract with Progressive Rail. Their vote to replace Iowa Pacific with Progressive Rail demonstrated solid support for hundreds of Watsonville workers and their families, for all county residents who want continued progress on the 32-mile rail trail, and for all commuters who just want real options to being stuck in traffic for hours every day. Not only that, the RTC also voted to explore modifying or replacing the Capitola trestle to accommodate both rail and trail users demonstrating their commitment to finding the best possible routing of the rail trail and to leveraging our hard earned tax dollars to the maximum extent possible. Their decisions are a win-win-win, protecting our people, our prosperity and our planet. Thanks commissioners. — Mark Mesiti-Miller, Santa Cruz (Published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel, 6/18/18)
