Submission Text
Dr. Wayland, I am sending this e-mail in support of the proposed Uintah Basin Railroad here in Utah. As a member of our community, I fully support a railway through the basin. I am a Pharmacist employed by Uintah Basin Healthcare and I see many residents on a daily basis. I hear from many that are in support of this and I can also see the potential positive impact bringing a railroad would have to this region. Many people here have struggled for a long time with an up and down economy and the railroad would be an opportunity to provide a much needed boost. Amongst other things, a railroad would provide much needed jobs and stability without a significant negative impact to the environment. My hope is that you would seriously consider supporting this project. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Michael Weber
