Mr. Slaw- Mayor of Crawville, a thriving metropolis in Pennsylvania

Crawville is a shore side city, with an excellent harbor, thriving manufacture industry, and booming population. However, the local region is not a viable market for most of its products, and with shipping being an operation which requires at least several months, the town experiences times of quick wealth, and periods of slow stagnation. The mayor believes that funding a municipal transport system will regulate the economy, by providing a cheap and efficient method to exchange products with other cities far away.

 

A self made man, Mr. Stones is the head of a shipping company with assets in many parts of the world. However, it is mainly composed of ships, whereas he lacks in any organized system of efficient land transportation. Having such a system would increase his range of operations as well as cutting costs of transportation for existing land trading routes.
