On Day One as Executive, Oakland County will have a leader who is committed to getting regional transit done and who has the relationships to see it through. Using smart growth, we will build affordable housing aligned with transit routes so families can afford a place to live and the commute to work.
We will build a regional mobility system that will get people where they need to go, and where they want to go. It will increase property values and make us more competitive for our kids who still leave Oakland County and Michigan at an alarming rate, and talent from across the globe. We will synchronize our investment in transit with affordable housing that tracks transit routes, bringing smart growth back to Oakland County after a long hiatus.
