Repair first, wash later

I am writing in regards to Richard Trerise’s Aug. 31 letter. Mr. Trerise stated “shame on the mayor for the dirty streets.”

For one thing, there is a tremendous amount of road construction going on. Speaking for myself, I would much rather see the roads repaired, than having the money go to washing the streets down.

Why doesn’t Mr. Trerise be a good citizen, get his hose out and wash his own street down?
