The Legislature officially returned to Lansing this week to take up their duties on behalf of the people of Michigan. Summer break is over, session has resumed, elections are around the corner and our roads are as dismal as ever. We must continue to fight for funding, to push for investment and to work with our elected officials to find a strong solution.
If you haven’t done so recently, please seriously consider meeting with your legislators face to face. This is a great way to make a case for the need for a permanent long-term investment in our infrastructure. As members, you are in a unique position to paint an accurate picture of the condition of the roads and bridges you are hired to repair or rebuild, as well as the amount of investment required to get the job done right.
Please contact Mariam Robinson, Outreach Coordinator, at 517-347-8336 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance in setting up a meeting. As always, the link to email your legislators is available at the top of the MITA homepage, www.mi-ita.com.
