The State of Maryland has some of the wealthiest and most diverse counties in the country. We need leaders who will reflect the fabric of our community and continuously fight for equal opportunities for working families.
Many Marylanders depend on our transportation system; therefore, it is a necessity that we must continue to invest into. Traffic congestion has proven to be the number one complaint amongst commuters that it takes too long to get to their desired destination. Therefore, we must invest in our transit infrastructure that will improve the quality of life for families. First, we must start by creating bus-only lanes, which will alleviate traffic flow and help reduce our carbon footprint. Additionally, We can develop a robust rail network to give commuters more options, reduce the amount of carbon emission that pollutes the air quality. Marylanders increasingly prefer to live within communities where it is easily accessible to bike or walk to they’re desired locations.
