The Pure Michigan campaign spent around $34 million last year to attract tourists. Those touring the state found beautiful landscapes, cities brimming with activity and of course, plenty of potholes.

It’s past time state lawmakers get serious about roads in Michigan, and it’s time voters take note of which officials promise long term solutions but settle for less.

Michigan Legislators, as Gov. Snyder mentioned in this year’s State of the State address, are currently pulling together $175 million for a fast patch to help address the problem.

That’s not good enough.

Across the state, as seen right here in Greater Lansing, Michigan roads are in a state of disrepair. Residents and tourists alike continue to pay consequences.
