So former state Transportation Secretary Doug MacDonald thinks that I-985 will “actually increase congestion.” [“Would ballot measure relieve traffic jams or worsen them?,” Politics & Government, Oct. 20]. He said, “it’s not going to move us forward”
This is from the expert who led the agency that spearheaded and designed the mess we are in now. Somehow having MacDonald sounding off is not very credible in my book.
This measure is at least a positive step toward helping to reduce congestion. It is not an overall solution, in and of itself, but it is not more of the same.
Positive steps were never part of MacDonald’s tenure.
