Students support high-speed rail

FresnoJuly 8, 2014 

#Iwillride is a student-based organization supporting high-speed rail. Our members consist of students in engineering, future business leaders, innovative thinkers, and most importantly, citizens of the Central Valley. We believe in high-speed rail. This is our train to opportunity — to develop ourselves and our city, bring back downtown and make the Central Valley our home. Five years from now, we will be Fresno. We will not be San Diego, Los Angeles or San Francisco. We will make this our home and be here to support and inspire the next generation of students and business leaders in the Valley. We are the future of Fresno, yet we feel that our voices have not been heard.

Fresno needs to invest in its students by creating opportunities in the Valley. People need to recognize that high-speed rail is creating internships, jobs and university-level research opportunities. Every reader should consider the jobs and opportunities this project will bring.
