Here's What Our Low Taxes Get You -- Dangerous Roads

Want to know what low taxes in Livingston County gets for you?

Take a look.

This stretch of Rushton Road between 9 Mile and Ten Mile won the "worst of the worst" pothole contest sponsored by the Livingston County Democrats. The stretch of road was nominated by Karen Hamp of South Lyon.

Traveled by nearly 5,000 motorists each day, the road has ruts along the edge that could cause a motorist to lose control if their vehicle left the road. Other stretches of pavement are so deteriorated that motorists frequently drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid them.

Livingston County's incumbent Republican commissioners could do something about the state of roads if they wanted to. Instead, they keep shoveling money into an airport that none of us uses.

To fix the roads, we need to fix the commission first. Vote Democratic on Tuesday.
