Georgia House of Representatives
I visited many of our Gwinnett citizens before the beginning of this session. People told me they would take public transportation if it were more available. It needs to be easily accessible and an attractive alternative to driving.
Light rail and other innovative alternatives are important. Neighboring states recently took advantage of federal funding because of plans for rail transportation.
Solving Gwinnett's traffic woes is a matter of setting priorities and good planning. The overpasses on 316 have been a blessing, but they are a beginning. Incentives for innovative transportation would keep us competitive.
Traffic relief is a must to attract both citizens and industry. This area can become the technology center of the southeast.
