Letter: Build the Bridge, if it is feasible

Tuesday, April 28 2015

Many persons have remarked to me about why the elected representatives, featured on the April 21 front page of the Sounder, would say no to something they know very little about.

How can they refuse the bridge option without knowing, the costs, the advantages, the disadvantages?

As elected representatives they have a responsibility to the electorate (that’s us), to find out the details of a proposed transportation option before making up their mind.

Why should the transportation critic, who lives hundreds of miles away, have any input into a local initiative?

Are we being asked to accept the control of the opposition party for our needs for transportation?

Supporters of the feasibility study have demonstrated no attachment to a political side. It is sad that the opposition is putting the cart before the horse.
