“Yes” on B

I RECENTLY HIT A POT-HOLE IN SAN JOSE THAT ALMOST KNOCKED MY FILLINGS LOOSE.

NOT TO MENTION THE DAMAGE DONE TO THE ALIGNMENT ON MY CAR.

IN FACT, ACCORDING TO THE MOST RECENT REPORT BY “TRIP,” AS REPORTED BY GARY RICHARDS – MR ROADSHOW – OF THE MERCURY NEWS, THE SAN JOSE URBAN AREA, ROUGHLY SANTA CLARA COUNTY, HAS THE WORST ROAD CONDITIONS IN THE UNITED STATES. YES, THE WORST.

SAN JOSE HAS A BACK-LOG OF $250 MILLION IN UNFUNDED ROAD REPAIRS.

BACK TO MY CAR ALIGNMENT: A RECENT STUDY STATES THAT THE AVERAGE SILICON VALLEY DRIVER WILL PAY ROUGHLY $756 EACH YEAR IN ADDITIONAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS COSTS DUE TO OUR BUMPY ROADS – AS OPPOSED TO THE NATIONAL AVERAGE OF $400.

WELL, HELP MAY BE ON THE WAY. ON NOVEMBER 2, WE CAN VOTE “YES” ON MEASURE B – A NOMINAL VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEE OF 10 BUCKS A YEAR TO TAKE SOME OF THOSE BUMPS OUT OF OUR ROADS.

THE FUNDS ARE RESTRICTED TO STREET MAINTENANCE AND POTHOLE REPAIR IN ALL 15 CITIES AND TOWNS IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY, PLUS OUR COUNTY ROADS AND EXPRESSWAYS.

I’M VOTING YES” ON B – BECAUSE I’M SICK OF POTHOLES.
