Thank Rep. Quigley for High-Speed Rail Leadership

Please Thank Rep. Quigley for his Leadership!

Congressman Mike Quigley recently took his support for high-speed trains to a new level.

Representative Quigley published an opinion piece in the Chicago Tribune on May 13 called “We need to invest in a high-speed rail future.”

The Tribune has the piece behind a paywall, but here is an excerpt:

“… The path forward is clear: Illinois should continue to improve its current rail infrastructure and better integrate that system into our transit network while laying the groundwork for a high-speed rail future.

If we chart this course, we can ensure the Midwest is not left behind as cities around the country renovate and innovate their transportation systems. We will be positioning ourselves well for the creation of an effective passenger rail network that our nation and region will benefit from.

Better yet, we can ensure that high-speed rail in the Midwest is the ideal for the rest of the nation to follow.”

The High Speed Rail Alliance loves and shares this vision. It is exciting and important to have an ally of Representative Quigley’s stature. He is the lead Democrat on a powerful Congressional subcommittee that oversees funding for the Department of Transportation.

As his constituent, your appreciation matters! Please thank your Congressman now.

We will not share your information with other organizations, but please keep in mind that your elected officials will see your information and may add you to their lists.
