Setti Warren on Technology

 

 


Build cross-state rail service

Mayor Warren said, "I believe that people making $20,000 a week, in our state, can afford to pay a little bit more to reinvest that in transportation and education." Mayor Warren supports an east to west rail service. He said the Commonwealth needs one, and that can only happen by providing transportation from one end of the state to the other, which he feels will strengthen our economy.

Reconstruct roadways; establish innovation centers

Public transportation systems are underfunded

Setti Warren believes the ability to move around the Commonwealth with reasonable speed and at reasonable cost is essential to addressing the challenges of economic inequality. Constant traffic, underfunded public transportation systems and crumbling roads and bridges are not just an inconvenience, they are an impediment to opportunity. Creating more good jobs where people live will help lighten the load on highways and public transportation. We need a strategy to make sure that regional transportation authorities are able to meet the needs of the people of the Commonwealth. We must commit to projects like extending the Blue Line to Lynn, building a bullet train from Springfield to Boston, and repairing our underfunded roads and bridges. We cannot wait 20 years to get this done.

50 years since serious national commitment infrastructure

Throughout our nation's history the federal government has helped finance the railroads, bankrolled highways and bridges, facilitated breakthroughs in aviation, and paved the way for Google and Microsoft by R&D investments in computing. A forward-looking government has a role to play. While countries in Asia have embarked on ambitious public works projects, it has been over 50 years since we have made a serious national commitment to infrastructure development. We need to invest in our nation's infrastructure if we want to remain the world's leading economic power. That means bringing broadband to rural areas, which facilitates business development in western Massachusetts. By investing in high-speed rail and our public transportation system, we can reduce traffic congestion, cut pollution, lower the cost of living, and make Massachusetts a more accessible place to work, live, and do business. We also need the federal government to partner with the state and modernize the MBTA.
