Finally we will be able to put the ballot initiative known as Proposal 1 behind us. It was an ill conceived and poorly executed plan with the idea of fixing Michigan’s roads as its source.

I could belabor the fact that lawmakers put the question back on the very people that sent them to Lansing in the first place but there isn’t any need. The truth is we need to focus now on a real plan to put Michigan drivers on quality surfaces and connected to each other with quality bridges and infrastructure.

My friends, election day is upon us. I predicted months ago this initiative would go down 2 to 1 and I also said we needed a plan B. I’m feeling pretty solid on both points today as well.
