MARSHALL, Texas — Residents of this community in northeastern Texas are continuing efforts to save the job of their Amtrak ticket agent.

The Longview (Texas) News-Journal reports that a petition with more than 500 signatures was delivered to federal and state officials on Monday in an effort to save the job of George Cantley, agent at the Marshall station for 28 years. Cantley’s position is set to be eliminated June 29.

Former state senator and judge Richard Anderson (not to be mistaken for the Amtrak CEO of the same name) delivered the petitions at a Monday press conference to representatives of U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert and state Rep. Chris Paddie.

The station is served by the Texas Eagle.
