Promise Would Divert from Infrastructure PDF Print E-mail
Commentary/Politics - Letters to the Editor

I was chairman of the board of the Davenport Chamber of Commerce when it successfully promoted passage of the one-cent sales tax. There was enthusiasm for infrastructure improvements then and, clearly, that enthusiasm remains.

The most recent Davenport Community Survey finds residents give their highest priority to continue improving the city's streets and infrastructure. That is fact.

Approving the "Promise" proposal would divert millions of dollars from such work. That, too, is fact.

The various claimed benefits of Promise are not facts. They are estimates and questionable ones at that.

For the bailout bill, public opinion is running anywhere from 100 to 1 to 300 to 1 or more against passing this bill, according to sources on Capitol Hill. Given the massive size of this package, the fact that it rewards the guilty on Wall Street and does nothing to address the cause, that anger is fully justified.
