Honorable Mr. Wayland,

I'm a small business owner in Roosevelt, Utah. I'm writing this letter in support of the proposed railroad spur linking our community to the major line in Price, Utah.

I've been in business in Roosevelt for over 10 years now and have seen the ups and downs of the economy. This area is heavily vested in oil production, but we are also a great area for farming and ranching and the possibility for other industry to build and bring job opportunities here.

I believe that a railway spur would open up the possibilities immensely for industries to look to invest in this wide open area and benefit us greatly.

Thank you for your time.
