“We at The Kresge Foundation are heartened that strong leadership and regional goodwill prevailed. Now it’s up to the voters in Southeastern Michigan to decide the future of regional transit in this area, with implications that could be felt generations to come. Whatever the electoral outcome, the policy debate around this issue has been a net positive – this conversation over transit illustrates the strong desire to rewrite our past, forge a new dynamic future and unify ourselves into a true economic and cultural region.”
