Dear West Waukesha Bypass Opponent,
Here's the latest "Take Action" e-mail message from the Coalition Opposed to the West Waukesha Bypass. Please pass this message on to other e-mail lists that you can access!
This time we are asking that you contact the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. If anyone has the ability to stop or slow down a highway project it would have to be the head of the agency itself.
E-Mail Secretary Mark Gottlieb at the e-mail listed below. We are asking that you also cc the Office of Policy, Finance and Budget at the DOT at the e-mail shown. Copy these e-mail addresses into your e-mail as indicated. Please take this action by June 26th, 2013

Here are some key points to make:
Here's a sample letter. Just copy and paste this into your e-mail. Put it in your own words and add any key points you might like to make if you would like.
Dear Secretary Gottlieb,
I'm writing you in regards to the West Waukesha Bypass project in Waukesha WI. being planned to begin in 2015. Specifically I'm asking that you cancel State funding for this unneeded highway expansion project and use these critical highway funds for more important projects. This controversial project was originally mapped as a Bypass around the west side of Waukesha 60 years ago. Much has changed in this area and this Bypass now passes through neighborhoods and past schools. It is only being built because it has been on the map all these years. Even the planners admit that this is no longer a Bypass project yet they are building it to Bypass specifications. This flaw in the planning process automatically eliminated more cost effective alternatives. Here just a few of the reasons you should eliminate funding for this project.
