Potter Writes Op/Ed Piece on Behalf of the Minnesota Transportation Alliance

Wright County Commissioner Mike Potter has written an op-ed piece in his role as president of the Minnesota Transportation Alliance that has been picked up by numerous news sources over the last two weeks. Potter and the MTA are asking both the state and federal government to fund the infrastructure needs as a way of pulling the economy out of the vacuum created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Potter writes that both sides of the political aisle are in agreement that current infrastructure for roads and bridges is antiquated and in need of funding, while being critical to the delivery of needed supplies that people need for their daily lives and for emergency services.
