Action Alert! More meetings for public commentary have been scheduled regarding the massive and irresponsible Chesterfield County bike path plans. This multi-million dollar, multi-year plan is a boondoggle for taxpayers, all to serve a very small percentage of the county population. We’re talking hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars.
We need your voice at these meetings.
We feel certain that a majority of county residents do not want to move forward with this astounding spending initiative, but your voices get drowned out by those who show up at the meetings, and in large numbers. There is a never-ending stream of people who want to reach into your wallets and purses, to directly transfer your wealth to the developers who “win” this county funding lottery.
Can we count on your support? Will you block off just a few hours of your time to protect your family’s finances? And don’t forget…you can join us this Thursday to ask candidate Cliff Bickford what is his position regarding the bike path plan.
Drop us a note if you can attend one of the meetings, and we’ll be sure to coordinate with you.
