Letter: Zip Rail, with Cannon Falls stop, would be beneficial

To the Editor:

I'm in favor of the Zip Rail. I'm thinking a station in Cannon Falls helps Goodhue County. It's an important link to build use of the Cannon Valley Trail. I would expect users from both Rochester and the Twin Cities to ride on the trail from Cannon Falls to Red Wing.

Right now the gas tax I pay goes to build roads I'll never use. Farmland is already zoned for mining, dump sites, utility poles, and highways are always taking more land.

Zip Rail provides and alternative that's good for trail users and residents.
