postcrescent : "As a Fox Valley community, we have a responsibility to ensure our neighbors and friends have the ability to access a workplace. Penny Bernard Schaber understands this responsibility and has consistently worked to make sure public transit continues to be a resource for residents of the Fox Valley. As our next state senator, Bernard Schaber will continue to be an advocate for public transportation that connects residents to jobs.
Penny feels that the state should consider setting up regional transit authorities as a method for supplementing funding for public transportation. To help make that happen, Penny, in 2011, brought forward a proposal in the state Assembly designed to keep the Valley Transit system running smoothly for years to come. Measures like these are a common-sense way to combat unemployment."
