St. Croix Co. Board Meeting
Government Center in Hudson, WI.
 
You are invited to attend the meeting and tell the County Board why a public transportation system would be important to you and/or your employees, clients, patients, customers or fellow county residents in St. Croix County.   Peg Gagnon and Scott Nelson will be making a presentation to the County Board.  There will be an opportunity for Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting.

This is a very important meeting and we need all the supervisors to  hear why public  transportation is greatly needed.  There is a 3 minute limit on comments.  If you can’t be there in person, I would be happy to read your comments into the meeting minutes—just email your remarks to me at peg@bridgecl.org .

Thank you for taking the time to help us develop an affordable public transportation system by sharing your support!  Please call or email me (Peg Gagnon) with any questions at (612)963-1913.


The Fight for Wisconsin Medicaid Needs You NOW

We have just learned that Congress plans to revive and vote on the American Health Care Act - the bill that will repeal Obamacare and make significant cuts to Medicaid soon! Best guess estimates indicate a 25% overall cut to Medicaid or a $1 billion loss to Wisconsin.
