Not a Penny for Roundabouts

October 1, 2005

I know I wrote you late last night. Several of you are meeting me in a
few minutes over at Delegate Dick Black's house. See you there.

I know its cold, so wear a sweater or work up a sweat. Thank you.

For the rest of you reading this now or later:

>>> NOT ONE PENNY FOR ROUNDABOUTS

Some of you have also taken up the torch against the Dreaded Roundabout.
Thank you.

The award for First Citizen Response goes to Beth Machado of Sterling:

My husband and I were stationed in Germany for five years. We had the
opportunity to visit many European countries. Each city and even some of
the small towns had round-abouts (I call them traffic circles). Let me
tell you from experience - THEY DON'T WORK! We witnessed many accidents
to the entrance of the round-abouts because the people in the
round-abouts wouldn't give the people entering the round-abouts a break.
What ever happened to the good old fashion traffic light? I know that
there are a lot of red light runners, but traffic lights are far more
safe than round-abouts.

THANK YOU BETH MACHADO.

"......Must we continue to throw money down a rat hole for a few elitist
citizens.."

to support his and other BOS members’ reasons for supporting their
position......"
