Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave and Racine Mayor Cory Mason, along with other members of the transportation task force, on Thursday took what they hope is the first of many trips for Racine residents.

Michael Maierle, the city’s Parking and Transit Systems manager, calls the transit center the “front door to Foxconn.” Read the full story here.
