    I appreciate Government-funding for transportation projects that include new roads,bridges,& public transportation of various forms including bus,subway,rapid transit trains,&/or car-&-bike-sharing programs. However, we shouldn't be dependent on the people funding it. As community leader, founder of multi-businesses & a nonprofit, I will use my experience to generate revenue & income in the city.

    I understand the need for a widening of Hwy 321 in our city and in our ward but I also don't think that we need to demolish local business'. We need to make sure that ALL of our roads are well paved to provide our citizens with a pleasurable driving experience as well as for visitors of our city. Providing work for our citizens through infrastructure renovations is a key to happy citizens.

    As a councilman, I will ensure that transportation costs are kept a minimum and that it will be affordable for all the city residents. The cost of transportation in our city has been steadily rising and it is fair to say that we must converge the skyrocketing costs and the cost of living for our residents. I seek to meet this discord for our city.

    I don’t support anything government funded that could be funded via the private sector. That being said if a state, county, and/or a municipality want to fund a public transportation system; as a US senator I’d be against any federal funding.

    Public transit should be "permitted," not tax-funded. Contractors should be allowed to build roads and bridges without unnecessary government interference, knowing that even highly regulated projects have failed catastrophically. Buses and trains are giving way to private ride-sharing ventures like Uber and Lyft. Private commerce does a better job at getting people where they need to go.
