Re: “As transit cuts loom, public tells board: ‘You’re messing with our life'” (TNT, 5-14).
I cringe at the idea of the upcoming Pierce Transit service/job cuts. One online comment I read spoke of the need to take care of the elderly and disabled. I can’t agree more!
Public transit, while “nice” for a lot of us, is necessary for many people. When tax increases have been on the ballot for Pierce Transit subsidy, it’s been no secret who would – and wouldn’t – suffer the most if they weren’t passed.
Public transit, for all the services it provides, is a necessary service and one that we as a community should never even consider not supporting. Costs for providing these services have risen.
I’m almost embarrassed to admit to being part of a community that would allow this to happen.
