Re: “Tacomans support tax for roads, survey shows” (TNT, 5-2).
Are they kidding? They sure didn’t ask me or anyone I’ve talked to.
We have already given the city millions for road repair, and what have we gotten? The roads in many cases are crumbling beyond repair to the point where anything short of complete replacement is farcical.
We’ve seen city workers paint circles around potholes only to see them improperly filled, so that at the end of the day the pothole is back and we are faced with paint that lasts longer than the repair, which is usually completely undone by day’s end.
Our new city manager hit it on the head with his comment about credibility. The city and road crews have none left with this voter.
I will not vote to throw good money after bad.
