Please forgive me, but to repair the “ light towers”? How about giving the Lincoln Tunnel a good scrub? This tunnel is a pig sty. It’s an embarrassment! and they have the nerve to raise the tolls in January?
Is the PA related to NY Mass Transit, who has misappropriated/stole funds for the past 20 years?
We have really set the bar really low when it comes to holding all these executives of public service accountable. We have just become so numb to the lack of respect they have for those they serve.
