Wild says Michigan mayors must have a role in fixing the roads issue.

Michigan voters rejected a ballot proposal earlier this month, which would have raised the state sales tax to generate an additional $1.2 billion for road repairs and maintenance.

But Westland Mayor William Wild says roads are still the top issue for his residents.  He’ll appear on a panel to discuss the subject Friday morning at the Mackinac Policy Conference.

Wild spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn.
