Federal fund for Hwy. 53 sit idle
I fired off a letter, which was printed, unedited, in today's paper. 7/25 Letters.
Federal funds for Hwy 53 cannot be used because the state can't match it. The state can't match it because it doesn't have the money. It doesn't have the money because our governor irresponsibly refused to consider tax increases to keep Minnesota's infrastructure at serviceable levels.
Whenever you see an accident due to lack of repairs or you are stuck in congestion, a driver on Hwy 53 can place the blame squarely on the Taxpayer's League of Minnesota and Gov. Pawlenty.
If it wasn't certain before, it's certain now: Zero tolerance for Republicans.
