This Transportation Tax Will Not Solve Our Problems
Taxes have created our congestion problems. Forty years of taxing San Mateo County to "relieve congestion" has instead built unimaginable levels of gridlock. The improving economy has showcased the serious shortfalls. The result is that most of us are stuck in traffic with no safe or efficient alternate choices. Our billions have been misspent on the county supervisors' favorite pet projects. Pollution has built up, adding known carcinogens to our air and water. Greenhouse gas emissions are worsening climate change in the fires and droughts we see around us. We can do better--vote no on the SamTrans sales tax and send a message. We need a better plan before we part with additional funds to augment the 2004 Measure A, which runs through 2034.
