That's great that the State is looking to do some repairs in the Central Mass area, but couldn't this money perhaps be better spent elsewhere right now??? There are thousands of people losing jobs in Massachusetts right now because of all of the budget cuts. It just seems a little hard to understand that we can spend 18 Million on bridge repairs, but lay off so many people in the meantime.
what about us

So if we spend the money creating jobs what will be said when the bridges collapse while everyone is driving to their new job?
