Goodbye 2020! Thank You Everyone For Your Support!
December 30, 2020
Rail Passengers President & CEO Jim Mathews says thank you in this brief goodbye to what has been a difficult year for everyone in the transportation scene. Thanks to all of our members, supporters, journalists, and staffers that have helped keep America's passenger rail advocacy network on track through these difficult times.
"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
