The Post's "Pothole" article and what's missing: Why a PAC and fear-mongering are responsible for City's poor roads

This will be very brief, folks. No need to belabor an old story. The truncated version follows:

This news in The Palm Beach Post by Kevin Thompson is hardly news at all if you've been paying attention to the City's roads and efforts to fix them. This wouldn't even be a news story if the LW2020 bond passed and the reporter briefly mentions that vote in 2014. However, what he doesn't mention is why that vote failed, by just 25 votes:
Learn about the CAUT PAC, Commissioner McVoy's fear-mongering about 'sea level rise', and how by just 25 votes the LW2020 bond vote failed using this link.
"NO NEW TAXES!" they said in 2014. And Commissioner McVoy said more needed to be known about rising sea levels so he campaigned against the bond too.

That's why we're in the position we're in now. The rest of the story, as they say.
