The Pothole Problem: Making Public Works Work For Memphis By Karen Camper
Meet The Candidates | September 12, 2023
Learn about Karen Camper's plan to address the pothole issue in Memphis as part of her campaign for Mayor. Discover her commitment to improving the city's roads for residents and businesses alike.

Potholes are a problem. A major problem. It's not just that they're unpleasant to the eye, but they make driving in Memphis a real challenge. Memphians rely on their automobiles as a primary mode of transportation. We drive our cars to the grocery store, to the doctor's office, to visit friends, and to take our kids back and forth from school. We count on our cars being in good shape so we can get things done. But all it takes is one large pothole to put your car in the shop and put your ability to fulfill your obligations at risk.

Our roads not only transport our residents but they also transport needed goods and services as well as products for our business community. As one of the largest logistic hubs in the United States, we need good roads to ensure that our businesses can get their products to the marketplace on time. Not only that, but in order to attract and retain companies to locate and remain in Memphis, we have to have roads that work for residents and businesses. Right now, our roads are falling apart and it appears that there is no solution in sight.

As your next Mayor, I will increase the Public Works budget to focus on road repair and repaving. My next step will be utilizing my relationships in the General Assembly to secure more funding for the City of Memphis in the state road plan, which will allow my administration access to funds that will repave and repair state roads that have fallen into disrepair. I will commit to using a data-focused approach that will give Public Works a roadmap on when and where to begin filling potholes or repaving streets on our most used roadways as well as our neighborhood streets and avenues.

Road maintenance is not a sexy issue, but it's a vital ingredient to making our city and our residents successful. If you want a Mayor who is truly focused on building a Memphis that works for all, it starts with our road system. I ask that you join me in my campaign for Memphis Mayor and together we can create a city that all Memphians can be proud of.
