2. The DRIC is an essential economic development issue
The DRIC, combined with the ongoing Aerotropolis project in western Wayne County, could be the next big engine of economic growth in the SE Michigan region -- and hence, for all of Michigan.

And, oh yes, Matty Maroun -- the developer who says he wants to build a new bridge -- can't get the permits to do what he claims to want to do(it's unclear how hard he is actually trying) and has been proven to be a liar and a cheat.

We have a governor now who is anti-choice. And has anybody noticed? No. That's because the governor has no real influence over the availability of abortions in the state. On the other hand, a governor has a lot of power to stall or kill off projects like the DRIC.

My fear is that Bernero's opposition would end up killing the DRIC and leave us waiting eons for Matty Maroun (the proven liar) to build the bridge he claims he wants to build. We cannot afford that. We need a second crossing ASAP.
