Save Greendale: Stop The Trolley Madness

Greendale, home of highway-lovin' State Rep. Jeff Stone (R), is thinking of buying a trolley!

How could he let this happen? Like all good Republicans in the State Asembly, he knows trolleys are the death-knell to a community!!!

Please, God, let this be a rubber-tired 'trolley,' and not the real thing, or Greendale is lost.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the bad news:

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 21, 2007, 3:36 p.m.
Downtown Greendale may get a trolley

Greendale - Village officials are considering purchasing a trolley to transport shoppers and visitors around the popular downtown area.

More than 200,000 people from all over the country visit downtown Greendale each year - to shop at the stores and visit the Reiman Publications Visitor Center and Taste of Home Outlet Store.

Those who favor buying the $30,000 trolley say it would add to the charm of downtown and would help ease traffic during the summer and special events.
