Can we trust our elected politicians? It seems as if they say one thing and soon after they change. As according to today's newspaper the state is going to use the transportation funding for other than they promised it would be used for. It is like our politicians in Fort Wayne: They tax this and that and promise it will be used for special projects. And soon after they also change what it is used for. They raise taxes for all the county, and now we will see if this is all they need and it will be used only for what they say. I don't see how this will help us out in the county as Fort Wayne will get new sidewalks and a beautiful riverfront. Let us see how this works out. Just like the food and beverage tax that was added years ago for the War Memorial Coliseum. Now it is freely used in many places. Just like they promised when the parking lor was paid for they would no long charge to park there but look what has happened. Another broken promise.
