Cameras, parks and swimming pools? How about our crumbling roads? I thought we voted in November 2012 for a new sales tax that would help public transportation and the roads. Gervais Street was supposed to be paved from Trenholm Road to Huger Street when work related to the water system was done, or so we were told.

My neighborhood street near Lake Katherine looks like a Third World donkey path.

Let’s take care of our infrastructure first, and then worry about the frills when we can afford them.
