Your Tax Dollars at Work

Original post made by JW on Aug 5, 2010

If you are wondering how your tax dollars are being spent in Palo Alto; I was amazed this morning to find a crew is presently tearing up the asphalt on one half of the Cubberley parking lot. Anyway that's what the crew tells me.

With the uncertainty about the future of Cubberley, and with all the detiorating buildings, it would seem our money could be better spent rebuilding some of the classrooms. Who knows, ten years from now, that parking lot may be built over and be part of a high school!!!

Given the deteriorating infrastructure throughout Palo Alto, tearing up and laying new asphalt on half the Cubberley parking lot would be at the bottom of my to do list. I have to believe there are better places to spend our tax dollars.

I like the project. I like driving my Mercedes Benz S-Class only on new surfaces to drive on.
