Don’t look to North Meck for tran­sit fix

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion - The writer is a for­mer Mecklenbur­g County com­mis­sioner.

In re­sponse to “CATS backs away from idea of rail tun­nel un­der up­town” (Jan. 24):

Be­fore we get too far down the tracks re­gard­ing new CATS fund­ing, a re­minder: The cit­i­zens of north Mecklenbur­g have been pay­ing a half-cent tran­sit tax for over a decade for a train that will never come and now get to pay up to a $25 toll to build a road for the “op­por­tu­nity” to pay for fu­ture rapid bus tran­sit fares.

Speak­ing for me – and I sus­pect over 100,000 oth­ers – don’t come look­ing for more.

– Jim Puck­ett, Hun­tersville
