No, I just drive Salem Road, I-20, I-285 5 days a week and not afraid to pay a little to get some relief. I guess I just see it as progress.
Vote yes for the T-SPLOST and Chairman Morgan will get her $4M without having to raise the millage rate. Win/Win. Vote YES
75% of the collected funds go to the listed projects. 25% of the funds are not project specific and can be used anywhere in the County. Without the T-SPLOST you have very little chance of getting any major improvements to any road for many years to come. With the T-SPLOST a lot more can get improved besides just the projects listed. Vote YES.
Find another way to fund the roads, like maybe T-SPLOST, and you will free up County money for other things, like maybe libraries.
So you vote no and save the extra $200 on the new car. Now that new car is stuck in traffic on say Salem Road, and the extra gas cost you $250 year not to mention the lost time. The other option is to raise the gas tax to pay for roads and then the new car cost $500 year extra in taxes. Why not let some of the people who don't pay income tax but do buy grocerys help pay for some improvements instead of just getting a free ride?
And voting no for the T-SPLOST is going to fix this how? (By the way, the "T" stands for transportation)
