New challenges face Larson in seventh term as Schaumburg mayor - DailyHerald.com

New challenges face Larson in seventh term as Schaumburg mayor - DailyHerald.com:

Makes a lot more sense than high speed rail,

"Larson is convinced that transportation improvements are the key to economic growth as they would take cars off the road and quicken the speed of travel throughout the region.

He serves on many regional boards to help advance his vision, but has been frustrated that such groups as the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning have bought into the notion that an improvement like the STAR line is financially unrealistic at this time.

Other mayors that continue to share his passion for the project include Arlington Heights’ Arlene Mulder, Hoffman Estates’ Bill McLeod and Naperville’s George Pradel."
