Under the hood of a 21st century transit system
Mapleville has never had much of a public transit system, but that could be about to change, and many would argue it’s not a moment too soon. If Tracy Bell gets her way there will be no more slow, old, overcrowded busses. And the benefits of her public transit proposal extend beyond simply getting people around. From job creation to decreased traffic on the road, this vision is for a future that is modern, efficient, and sustainable. The question now is if residents agree.SOURCE: Current Events Weekly

Tracy Bell doesn’t want a wind farm because of PROPERTY VALUES
Tracy Bell, also known as the bored rich kid currently running for elected office, doesn’t want to see her opponent’s wind farm project get built.
