Letter to all Bond Commission members
Dear Bond Commission Member,
In Louisiana, a state drowning in water and political corruption, money continues to flow like water to build Reservoirs.
While citizens statewide are fighting building 14 new Reservoirs, Hurricane Katrina breached a levee, and a reservoir flooded and destroyed New Orleans.
The October 20, 2005 Bond Commission meeting lists $ 3.2 Million for Reservoirs while money has been rescinded for many worthwhile projects.
Will Reservoirs continue to be one of our top priorities, and a foolish waste of our tax money? With the budget problems Louisiana faces this money is badly needed elsewhere.
Should the old and poor suffer, and taxpayers spend $40 to $50 million a lake to make developers wealthy? Will Louisiana change it’s foolish ways, and Politics as usual?
With Louisiana’s budget problems it is foolish to fund projects requiring continued funding year after year that we can’t afford.
The proposed Washington parish Reservoir will desecrate cemeteries, and take the homes of the old and poor.
It is not too late to stop the waste of money on this foolish project before construction begins.
Please, stop the waste of taxpayers’ money for unneeded foolish pork barrel reservoirs.
