The Justice Road Bond vote is Saturday, Oct 7, and early voting has occurred already. Some members of both major parties are opposing the bond (and some members of both parties are supporting it).
I’ve already laid out my reasons for opposing the Justice Road Bond—read the post at the link for more details… but briefly, I’d like to see the cost of road maintenance fall more proportionally on those doing the damage rather than have it being balanced on the backs of regular people. I’d also like to see the money going to the rural, economically distressed areas that are bearing so many socialized costs of extraction with frack and coal trucks.
That said, I’m curious to see what moved others to oppose the bond. Or did you support it? Share your thoughts with me. If I’ve missed a reason, there’s also a place to comment below.
Poll: Why did YOU vote against the Justice Road Bond?
Holler from the Hollers! Take the poll—select as many answers as apply—and then see the results…
Keep in mind that when you look at the results, “I voted FOR the bond” is likely to be the top result, because all the NOs aren’t lumped together. To get a better idea of how readers voted, you’ll want to add all the NOs up. (Also keep in mind: this is not a scientific poll at all; this is just an informal poll of readers of this blog.)
