DLP Leads Rally Against CSX Rail Hub

The disadvantage of being a hyperlocal blogger is you can’t cover every story, and work sometimes takes precedence. That’s what happened yesterday when I missed Downtown Lakeland Partnership’s Rally Against the CSX Rail Hub.

Of course, the media was there in full force. Three TV stations and The Ledger.

Empirical Polk’s Josh Hallett also attended and took quite a few photos.

There was some talk about a low turnout, but I wonder how many average citizens would attend a pro-rail hub rally? If you didn’t attend, you can still sign the petition at many downtown businesses or online.
