Another hopeful sign that New Orleans Florida service will return if we all keep pushing for it!

    I think I posed this question before, but does anyone in FCRP have Rep. Yoho's ear on this? He seems to me to be too busy worrying about bringing down Obama to give a rat's ass about his constituents. Anyway, I sent him a message reminding him that the route passes through the northern part of his district and asking him his position on this.

      Mike, Steve Sayles has spoken to Rep. Yoho on this very issue a number of times in person. Glad you reached out to him. The Congressman needs to continue to hear from supporters of this service.

        Thank you, Jackson. If Yoho's staff person contacts me, I'll mention Steve Sayles' name to him/her, and also mention that I'm a member of FCRP.
