Nashua Telegraph: Kuster Meets with Nashua Rail Proponents
U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster knows that lots of people in Nashua would like to see passenger rail to Boston, and she heard it again Friday morning.
Kuster hosted a roundtable at Nashua Community College to discuss the possible expansion of passenger rail into New Hampshire and other ways to support transportation around the state.
Participants included Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, Nashua Chamber of Commerce President Chris Williams, state Sens. Bette Lasky and Peggy Gilmour, and representatives from the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, the Nashua Regional Planning Commission, the New Hampshire Rail Transit Authority, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation and Nashua Municipal Airport.
“During today’s roundtable, I was grateful to hear from so many business and community leaders about the importance of maintaining a strong transportation infrastructure to spur economic development and job creation in the region and across the Granite State,” Kuster said in a statement. “New Hampshire can’t lead in the 21st century economy with 20th century infrastructure.”
