La Crosse Weighs In
November 10, 2010 11:00 AM
In yet another editorial from a Wisconsin newspaper that endorsed him for governor, today's La Crosse Tribune calls on Governor-Elect Scott Walker to reconsider his position on high speed rail in light of U.S. DOT Secretary Ray La Hood's firm statement that our money will go to another state, maybe New York, if we turn it down.

The Tribune's editorial is especially significant because it underscores the point that this isn't just about Madison. It's about economic development and jobs for the whole state. It's about building an image as a place that is welcome to new ideas and new technology and wants to be connected to the world.
