Say no to automatic gas tax increases with a yes vote on Question 1

"For that price, our streets should be paved in gold"

Dear Editor,

I am urging your readers to vote Yes on 1. Commonwealth drivers are spending $675,000 per mile on road maintenance. For that price our streets should be paved in gold. The national average is $162,000 per mile.

It is clear that we are paying enough to fix our roads. The problem is that they are wasting our tax dollars. I am voting Yes on 1 to repeal automatic gas tax hikes.

I will not give the state anymore of my money to waste.
