Supervisor Hap Connors counters Supervisor T.C. Waddy on bond discussion
Supervisor T.C. Waddy, the Livingston District supervisor, has long held that residents in his rural district have not gotten their fair share of the 2005 bond referendum money. He says he has so many dirt roads and hardly any of the $144 million has been used to pave dirt roads. Waddy said during last night’s county board meeting that the Board of Supervisors will find it real hard to pass another bond referendum.
Supervisor Hap Connors snapped. He said Waddy’s comments are a disservice to the community.
"Mr. Waddy I share your frustration that this takes time, but I do not want to leave the perception that we’re not getting anything done," Connors said.
Connors then had Becky Golden, the director of capital projects, to talk about all of the projects underway and completed with bond money. There’s not a lot done, but there is a lot in the pipeline.
Here is a story I did about the 2005 bond referendum.
