As the Tampa Bay Times stated so clearly in its Sept. 30 editorial, "For a Better Hillsborough,'' we support each of the referendums on the ballot addressing options for Transportation Services (Hillsborough County Referendum #2) and Public School Infrastructure support (Hillsborough County Referendum #3).
We believe in the endless possibilities of economic development opportunities for Hillsborough and this region if we can begin to address specific transportation mobility solutions with assured funding, as well as basic and essential infrastructure support for our public schools.
Each proposal has appropriate oversight committees with citizens involved and each will serve as transparent guarantees to our community that the collected funds are spent as explained and expected in each referendum.
Please join us in your active support by voting YES on both of these measures.
