Siegelman in the Wiregrass

By  | 

Former Gov. Don Siegelman unveiled more of his campaign platform Wednesday.

Siegelman said that if he's elected next year, he will push a bond issue for road and bridge construction like he did in his first term.

That bond was for $250 million.

Siegelman said a new road program should concentrate on four-laning major highways crossing the state and should improve rural roads.

He says new industries like to build near four lane highways and his program would help get more industries into rural areas.

Siegelman announced his road plan one week after a federal grand jury indicted him and his former highway director, Mack Roberts, along with two others. He says the indictment will only make his campaign harder for governor.
