Kudos to city residents for investing five years ago in the Carnegie Library with a dedicated tax (“Strong Libraries: Wise Public Investments Bolster the Carnegie,” March 29 editorial). It is clear that a system can best serve the people when it is supported.
The time has come for county residents to follow suit and to support a dedicated funding source for transportation. If Allegheny County is going to keep and attract businesses and people, it must invest in transportation.
The transportation bill signed by Gov. Tom Corbett in November was a much-needed first step, but our transportation future lies here, not in Harrisburg.
