Statement on Regional Transit Ballot Initiative

“We are grateful to all of our supporters and volunteers who worked so hard to show the tremendous benefits voting YES would have provided, including: connecting our communities across Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties, increasing independence for seniors and people with disabilities and connecting people to jobs and opportunities throughout Southeast Michigan. This election was unprecedented and unusual in many, many ways and there’s no doubt that was reflected in this initiative’s razor thin margin and unfortunate outcome.”
