Infrastructure and Transportation
Geiss supports improved funding for infrastructure and transportation so that our roads and bridges can be fixed and maintained. But she knows that addressing state department funding formulas or fees paid by residents are not our only infrastructure and transportation issues. It’s critical that we improve revenue sharing levels for local governments so that local roads can be improved.
Our infrastructure also includes the pipelines underground and the wires overhead, and we need to ensure both short-term and long-term planning so that these systems are sound.
Geiss is the only candidate for the first state Senate district who has served on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee (Democratic Vice Chair) and who has been working continuously with other Downriver legislators and community leaders on getting answers and working towards solutions to our continued issues at train crossings—it has been an ongoing battle, but Geiss is committed to finding visionary approaches and solutions to improve the issue for our residents and communities.
Geiss is also supportive of regional transit that connects our communities and takes into account the varying needs of our residents and their need for reliable forms of mobility.
