So what are our priorities? It saddens me that our hard earned tax dollars (and lives!) are being spent on a losing war in Iraq when we need money here to invest in schools and education, "green" our communities, improve transit and create alternatives to our oil addiction, provide health insurance and health care for our citizens, build affordable housing, and many other worthwhile projects.
Well, those are some of the ways I would spend that money. So how would you spend $75.5 million to better our community?
