You know we’re in the silly season when even the most obvious truths can’t be uttered without challenge. From today’s Macon Telegraph:
Georgians have to work together for big transportation projects or they’ll keep falling behind, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood told a group of Macon-area and Georgia leaders Friday.
“Georgia needs to get its act together, and I think you’re starting to do that,” LaHood told about 200 people at the Macon City Auditorium during the Georgia Intermodal Leadership Summit.
LaHood said leadership at all levels needs to work together for the kinds of transportation projects that can change America over a generation.
“If Georgia wants a rail line and wants to be connected to high-speed intercity rail, you can make it happen,” he said.
“You need to have leadership from all of you, but you need it from the governor’s office, too.”
