"Transportation! A reliable funding source must be passed in order to fund the great needs within our transportation network. Multi-modal uses must be pushed to reduce cars on our overcrowded roads, as construction cannot occur overnight. Employers must be able to get their employees to work or the technology industry supporting Northern Virginia will locate elsewhere."
