So­lu­tion is fix worst roads first

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Where to be­gin. I read with in­ter­est the on­go­ing bat­tle at City Hall re­gard­ing the gas tax dol­lars for road re­pairs. Brand, Bre­de­feld and Bran­dau claim its a mat­ter of eq­uity and safety.

I agree!

To be eq­ui­table, the ar­eas with the great­est need should re­ceive a bulk of the funds. I’ve lived at the Wood­ward Lake area now for about 12 years and have seen our streets and side­walks main­tained on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Mean­while, my par­ents have lived on the 400 block of S. Whit­ney since 1969 and have en­dured the same pot­holes and bro­ken side­walks for the last 40 of those 50 years.

To keep our cit­i­zens “safe” I pro­pose a traf­fic sig­nal be in­stalled im­me­di­ately at the the cor­ner of West Audubon Drive and North Del Mar Ave., where the res­i­dents com­ing out of that north­ern neigh­bor­hood claim to “lit­er­ally” put their lives on the line just to come out of their neigh­bor­hood onto Audubon. I for one, would lose sleep won­der­ing if I’d ever be able to see my fam­ily again just be­cause I had to go to work.

Shame on the coun­cil ma­jor­ity! Don’t they know the safety of us vot­ing north Fresno res­i­dents has more value than a south of Shaw res­i­dent?
