I know that we are in a nationwide and perhaps even a worldwide recession. I am also aware that the city's income/revenue is down and tourist traffic is down. I also know that you have had to layoff hundreds (thousands?) of valuable employees and that the city is facing a major budget shortfall. I am also aware that our school lunch program is at risk because of the larger problems our state is having.
While I am not unreasonable...I have to ask where the roads and public works projects rank on the list? I value school lunches far more than our roads, but I have a larger more selfish problem right now, so indulge me.
You see, I just spent $1300 on car repairs that all involved wear and tear related to the poor conditions of our roads. Since I feel bitter (and a variety of other feelings not appropriate for this blog) about this, I feel the need to assign the blame to someone else. And, lets face it--you are as good as anyone.
So, I ask you humbly, please make the repair of roads, potholes, freeways, and highways more of a priority. Oh, and thank you for recently installing ramps at the corners of our streets.
