Two Transportation Town Halls are just around the corner: Mark Your Calendars!
Tuesday, October 29, 2013
This November, members have an opportunity to attend transportation town halls on both sides of the state. These town halls are an excellent and valuable opportunity for members to see and meet their legislators in a public forum and to ask them outright to support transportation and infrastructure funding. We encourage all members, their colleagues, their employees, their family and community members to come out to these two events in a show of support for the need for increased funding. Legislators constantly claim that they don’t hear enough from their constituents, so this is a golden opportunity to let your voice be heard on this important issue. The dates, times and locations are listed below:
Hosts: Rep. Margaret O’Brien and Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker
Date: Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

We are tracking all member efforts to get involved in the process of securing increased funding for the industry.
