Bexar County Commissioner Lyle Larson has long fought to get the original gas tax funded plan for overpasses and expansion installed on 281. Read his latest letter to the Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker Craddick, Rep. Frank Corte, and Sen. Jeff Wentworth here. Give us the overpass plan now: www.281OverpassesNow.com.
By contrast, State Representative Frank Corte is up for re-election in just days…where is he on this? He voted to toll every chance he got in the legislature and has done NOTHING to prevent the freeway to tollway conversion on 281 and on parts of Loop 1604. Maybe its because he doesn’t even live in the district and has deceptively claimed a vacant lot as a residence. He doesn’t feel our pain or the urgency of the situation because he doesn’t LIVE in this congestion day in and day out like we do.
Send him a message at the ballot box…you vote to increase our taxes and let 281 motorists languish for 5 years when the gas tax fix has been paid for, you don’t deserve to be re-elected November 4.
