Meeting with state transportation leaders last week, Delegate Jason Buckel and Allegany County Commissioners President Jake Shade expressed frustration with lack of action in replacing and re-opening the three West Side bridges in Cumberland.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH HOLDING XXX ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE DAMAGE THEIR TRAINS DID TO CUMBERLAND’S BRIDGES? It’s high time that the people of Cumberland get the use of their bridges back.

Only hold the average citizens accountable. We’ll work with the rich and big business to negotiate and try to find a way to make the taxpayers pay for damages. CAN if you read this you should be very very ashamed of yourself. DEAD UP and do right by the people, or don’t look for a bailout the next time railroads need a helping hand to stay in business.
