Amtrak to stop in White Rock
Stop that train! State senator Georgia Gardner, D-Blaine, wants Amtrak and the city of Blaine to reconsider the citys support of Amtraks decision to have a stop at White Rock instead of Blaine.
While city manager Gary Tomsic supports the stop in White Rock because of the cost of building a station and parking, Gardner said she wants a stop in Blaine because it would help boost the economy.
She also said she was disappointed city officials never contacted her before throwing their support behind White Rock.
A scheduled meeting between White Rock officials and Amtrak to finalize the stop, scheduled for April 4, was postponed while White Rock and Amtrak work out details of the agreement.
