Businesses—it’s time to stand up—Together

A large and growing portion of the business community is now aware the CRC project is very broken. Our team and others have uncovered a wealth of information about how this CRC project was generated and guided by special interests that plan to profit either politically or financially.
In reality this CRC project devastates the local area with generational debt and will not contribute to solving regional transportation issues.
Come see the following speakers talk about the damage this CRC project will cause to our community—and the go-forward process to properly address transportation issues. This is an opportunity to meet your fellow business owners and citizens who are standing up to the small group that is attempting to force this boondoggle upon all of us.  We welcome you to join us.
