Project Description

Janice-SimsJanice Sims is an active member of her St. Cloud community and her local church. “Extending Northstar to St. Cloud would make my life so much easier. I am an aspiring missionary, and the train would allow me to attend necessary courses in Minneapolis. With no family in St. Cloud, the train would make traveling more efficient and frequent. My family and my children are important to me. Northstar would allow me to better care for my elderly mother who recently had a pace maker put in.” Her reasons for supporting better transit options also extend beyond the personal. “Having the train will increase the economic growth of our community, provide access to more jobs in the metropolitan area, make it easier to get to the airport, and create less traffic. My faith tells me that there should be access and opportunity for all.”
