You do not have to go far in Oakland County to realize that our system of roads is in terrible disrepair. The remarkable thing is, that despite our crumbling roads, Oakland County is not the worst. Last year the State of Michigan missed out on over $700 million of federal matching funds for our roads. Our representatives in Lansing decided to spend our money elsewhere. Had the state matched these dollars, we would have added over a BILLION dollars to our road funds. Making sure that Oakland County's roads improve is very important to me. Clear and easy travel allows for faster commerce, job creation, and economic growth.
