Boise Chamber Legislative luncheon

A panel consisting of Caldwell Mayor Jarom Wagoner; Jay Fox, executive director at the Utah Transit Authority; and Chase Kitchen, senior manager of government Affairs for Amtrak, discusses the future of rail travel in the Treasure Valley during the Boise Metro Chamber’s annual legislative forum luncheon at Boise Centre on Thursday.

Caldwell Mayor Jarom Wagoner wants people from Portland and Seattle to spend the weekend — and their money — in Caldwell, writes Idaho Press reporter Erin Banks Rusby.

It would be one of the many benefits of restoring the passenger train service from those areas to the Treasure Valley, Wagoner said at the Boise Metro Chamber’s legislative forum luncheon on Thursday, which focused on the future of rail locally. The event took place at the Boise Centre.
