In advance of transit being on the ballot across Oakland and Macomb Counties, we’re bringing together civic leaders, riders, agency staff, and others for a series of Transit Town Hall events.
- Learn the latest transit improvements and visions for the future
- Share your ideas and get your questions answered
- Get involved in transit planning and promotion!
Our first Macomb County Transit Town Hall was August 3 in Clinton Township
We hosted our first Transit Town Hall at Macomb Community College Center Campus. A big thank you to our partners for the Macomb events: Henry Ford Health and Macomb Community College!
- John Paul Rea, Macomb County Deputy Executive
- Bonnie McInerney, SMART Macomb Ombudsperson
- Barbara Rossmann, president and CEO, Henry Ford Macomb Hospital
- Kristen Briggs, Sterling Senior Center Director
- Dave Gifford, bus rider and founder of Transit Guide: Detroit
Despite extreme thunderstorms, we had a good crowd and some great presentations. (Despite a few technical difficulties, you can watch the recording of most of it from Facebook.)
Note: This event was for educational purposes and is not intended as an endorsement of any ballot proposal, political party or candidate for public office.
Next up: Oakland County Transit Town Hall: Wed August 10 in Pontiac
Our next event will be Wednesday, August 10 at 6pm at the Crofoot in Pontiac, featuring Oakland County Commission Chair Dave Woodward and Pontiac Councilman Mikal Goodman. Co-hosted by the City of Pontiac and the Oakland County Organizing Roundtable.
