The communities of District 37 are growing at a rapid pace, and the growth is going to continue. Our transportation system is outdated. Many of the roads serving our residents, schools and businesses are “farm to market” roads built in the early part of the 1900’s, never designed nor constructed for the demands of today. To improve public safety and efficiency, pressure point intersections must be improved and better connections to major roads must be developed. Our communities are not getting enough resources from the State to serve our transportation needs. John will utilize his extensive background in government and on transportation issues to produce legislation that increases resources for improving our transportation system and promotes effective transportation planning.
