    Just something I heard. Is it true? Seems connecting communities is important. Sounds like "jobs".

    i think that's partly the point. but more to the point is if people in these districts think their representatives are going to vote against putting them back to work AND maintaining infrastructure, then they aren't going to be very happy with their elected representative.

    Simple rule rdean, if you hear it, and post it, it is probably not true.
    That has worked out very well for me, and it should work just as well for you.

    The unsafe bridges are to keep Obamas Uber bus away from there.

    The Ross Island Bridge here in Portland is closed to anything over 20 tons. Does that mean the Blumenauer, or Nancy Pelosi are responsible?

    One can still blame Republicans, as the county Commission was all Republican back in 1923 when it was built, and they used recycled spans from the old Burnside bridge and they built the approaches on an underground river.
