George King: Happy Keystone PID failed

George King

Our principal residence being in another state disqualified us from voting in the PID issue. As a homeowner in Keystone I applaud the voters who chose to defeat spending others people’s money for a state highway. A true democracy would have permitted those affected to have a voice in this project.

The expense for putting this on the ballot cost taxpayers $10,000. I suggest funding to improve this “shovel ready” project be provided by the owner … the federal government.

Civic-minded proponents with financial strength might consider raising private contributions or hold a bake sale rather than force others to fund their vision.
