Pet projects taking the money to fix roads

The Daily Herald's front-page story on Feb. 27 about potholes was superb. First there was the usual nonsense about the weather causing them. Then came the truth from experts that the roads were old, old, old. More nonsense about no money. Where did the gas tax, city stickers, license plate fees, etc. go?

Our elected leaders of both parties use the money for pet projects. Then they blame the other party. Anyone who thinks their party is 100 percent right and the other party 100 percent wrong is an idiot.
