‘Michigan Matters’ Focus: Will RTA Transit Tax Fix Regional Woes?

Will the RTA Trasit Tax voters in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw Counties voting on in a few weeks help regional transportation in Metro Detroit?

And what will the measure cost residents in those counties?

Those were among questions answered by Ned Staebler, of WSU and Tech Town, as he appeared with John Mozena, of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, and “Michigan Matters” Senior Producer/Host Carol Cain to debate the controversial measure.

Mozeno raised concerns including the long term costs of accomplishing what the RTA plan calls for over the 20-years it would entail if approved by voters.

Then, Charlie Beckham, Rocky Raczkowski and Ryan Mack appeared with Cain on the roundtable to debate impact of the Trump tape and latest in the Clinton email saga.

Raczkowski, who is supporting Trump, said the email saga would have lingering impact with voters.

Mack, who was working on Wall Street on 9-11 when the twin towers were taken down by planes, said Clinton, who was U.S. Senator from New York back then, has been engaged with the American public and would make a good president.

The trio debated the impact of African American voters on the presidential race.

And they weighed in on the RTA Transit Tax.

You can hear the conversation by watching “Michigan Matters” 11:30 Sunday on CBS 62.
