"I believe we need good information to make good decisions. I am in favor of including the $4 million rail study in the State’s 10-year transportation plan. The funds are from the federal government and while all 'free' money really comes from taxpayers, the $4 million would not come directly from New Hampshire residents and would not represent an additional tax burden. We should take advantage of the funds and commission the study.
"As an Alderman I voted in favor of the Memorandum of Understanding Nashua now has with the Boston Surface Railroad Company (BSRC.) BSRC’s plan as approved by the Board of Aldermen and signed by the Mayor, is to build and operate a for-profit rail service that can connect Nashua to Boston, via transfer at a station in Massachusetts, that will not cost New Hampshire taxpayers anything other than the cost to build a station. I believe BSRC’s plan is sound and I am looking forward to seeing how it develops.
"In summary, I believe we should do the $4 million study while also doing all we can to see that BSRC’s plan succeeds."
