SALEM — The Salem Town Board is giving a thumbs down to the KRM.

The board voted Monday to voice its opposition to the plan to extend commuter rail from Kenosha to Racine and Milwaukee.

“The town itself is not going to benefit from it, (but) eventually there will be some kind of taxes in some way on the citizens of our town,” Chairman Linda Valentine said. “I am just not of the mind that the western part of Kenosha County would benefit from it.”
