In the fall of 2014 the Republican House and House leadership ran and won on a campaign promise tthey were going to pass a transportation bill that would meet the needs of Greater Minnesotans. To date they have not done so. GRIP/ISAIAH leaders have communicated to all of our local representatives, the Speaker of the House and now this past week the governor of our state that we would like a transportation bill to include the completion of Northstar rail line to St. Cloud.
GRIP/ISAIAH leaders here in 13B have recognized the opportunity and responsibility Rep. Tim O’Driscoll has to the area of transportation and economic investment. O’Driscoll serves on the Capitol Investment Committee with Rep. Theis (R). With St. Cloud Rep. Jim Knoblach chairing the Ways and Means Committee and serving as ex-officiate on the Transportation Committee, we are certain these local representative can work together to create a transportation package that invests in the people and economy of central Minnesota by completing the Northstar Rail line to St. Cloud. If you would like to see Northstar finished to St. Cloud, please contact O’Driscoll at 800-920-9984 or Rep. Tim.Odriscoll@house.mn.
We invite them and all community members to attend our public gathering from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. The event is free, but you need to register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
