It's Time for a Wayne-Washtenaw Transit Plan

Date: 
Wed, Feb 21, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

City:

With each passing week, the future of a four-county RTA proposal seems bleaker and bleaker. The missed deadline for an agreement among the Big Four this January and L. Brooks Patterson's unequivocal rejection of a regional transit plan in his State of the County address are not encouraging. While we will keep organizing north of 8 Mile and fighting for a transit system for the entire region, it is time to put plan B—a regional transit proposal between Wayne and Washtenaw Counties—into motion.

Democracy only works when everyone can participate. By making voting more accessible, secure and fair, our democracy will better serve all Americans and our laws will better reflect the will of the people. Everyone – Republicans, Democrats and Independents – deserves to have their vote secure and counted. Michiganders across the state are coming together to learn about how we can get to work improving our state’s voting system to ensure it prioritizes voters and removes barriers for working families.
