How do you get to work?
As you may know, I am a commuter, traveling back and forth from Montross to Washington, D.C. daily when Congress is in session, and so I experience firsthand the transportation challenges in our region. The men and women of Virginia’s First District spend countless hours in transit, whether on the railways or the roadways, and they are eager for improved transportation solutions.
Transportation funding is the number one issue that I hear about from both business owners and community leaders from Prince William County to Fredericksburg to Williamsburg. I’ve consistently called for Congress to abandon temporary transportation extensions and pass a long-term highway bill so that we can establish a comprehensive plan for dealing with a variety of issues, including congestion, roadway maintenance and safety, and infrastructure development.
As Congress heads back into session I wanted to take a moment and gauge how the people of Virginia’s First District get to work so I may better advocate on your behalf.
So, how do you get to work?
