Please be more selfish
Let’s get this straight. You whiners in King County think that you can make better decisions about which streets to plow in a snowstorm so you can do your own traveling [“Mayor Nickels gives city ‘B’ grade for snow response,” News, Dec. 24].
First, plow my street, then plow my street that goes to another street; that would help maybe another 100 cars or so. Then plow another street to get to the major arterial road that services tens of thousands of cars each day.
I think the traffic backup on the first few roads that were plowed will probably stop the plows from getting to the road that matters the most. You want all the roads plowed for your pleasure? How much in property taxes can you really afford?
Do your neighbors a favor and hire your own plow. What part of “unbridled selfishness” don’t you understand?
Thanks for your good work, government officials. Job well done.
