Schauer thinks businesses should be part of the solution in fixing roads before Michigan residents are asked to pay more.  That's because they benefit from the roads and also received big tax reductions under Governor Rick Snyder.

Schauer says education is his top policy and budget priority.  He also wants to do more to promote healthy, safe, and walkable communities.
