Shame on the Measure G committee

by

comment

Yesterday I received yet another full-color oversized card requesting my vote for sales tax Measure G. On it, Dave Romero commented that our infrastructure was falling way behind until Measure Y passed in 2006.

Wasn’t Dave Romero the Public Works director for more than 35 years? Didn’t he serve on the City Council and then as mayor from 1994 until after Measure Y was passed?

What was he doing all those years as Public Works director if not doing public works? What was he doing on the council if not pushing for infrastructure maintenance and progress? Weren’t “Dave” and “pave” inextricably linked? As I recall, he was proud of that. The corporation yard was even named after him—a public servant who, if we believe Measure G proponents, did nothing by his own admission for more than 50 years!

Shame on you, Measure G proponents. Whoever among you wrote that quote for him has discredited and made a fool of a now-elderly man who served our city well. You owe him a public apology for misrepresenting his life’s work on our behalf. You people are liars and idiots. I will never vote for Measure G.
