Re: “Streetscape causing initial angst” (TNT, 1-18).

We all have different ideas of where the pittance of money this city gets from federal and state grants should go, but do our expert leaders really think the money should go for an $8.3 million project to “streetscape” Pacific Avenue?

While I realize funds for various projects are socked away in different accounts, we still have big potholes all over town and now we’re told we can’t even afford to paint stripes on our crummy streets.

I guess I’ll just keep to the right and hope for the best.
