Mary Schneider says roads will get worse without local support.

The absence of Measure G will guarantee that we will enjoy worsening traffic.

We will be able to enjoy the fun of visiting our friends in Aromas with the heightened suspense of crossing the bridge over the creek and wondering if it will collapse this time (the steel plate over the hole won't hold forever).

As a senior citizen who worked in Watsonville, I counted the steadily worsening traffic as one of the reasons for my retirement. There are three sources of funding: state, gas tax and local. Without the third, we guarantee things will get worse.
