Letter: Nothing to show for bridge costs

The Columbian

Somehow, the bureaucrats with the Columbia River Crossing have managed to spend $140 million in taxpayer money, and what do we have to show for it? No new bridge. And they want us to give them $3.5 billion more.

For what? Light rail that a majority of Clark County likely won’t ever use?

It’s time to ask the citizens what we want, and what we are willing to pay for. Please let the citizens of Clark County vote on this bridge as soon as possible.
