Road not wanted
If Tampa Councilman John Dingfelder lived west of Dale Mabry Highway rather than east, he might understand why those of us in the adjoining Gandy neighborhoods are so vehemently against the proposed elevated bridge ("Foes of plan for elevated road over Gandy call on council," Metro, March 5). He won't be bothered with this eyesore that will ruin small businesses, promote pollution filtering down on us, raise the noise level and the lights shining down on us and will light up our yards like a Christmas tree!
Making Gandy a double decker will destroy the heart and soul of what has been a fine place to live.
I am disappointed with the Republican Party's ads about Democrat Alex Sink. The Republicans must not have a good candidate of their own if they are using such obviously sleazy tactics without mentioning their own choice. I'm fed up with this type of politics. It's dirty and disgusting. I'm sorry I'm a Republican and might change my vote due to the way most Republicans have acted in the past year.
President Obama's health care reform will not become effective until 2013. If we really have a health care crisis, why is he delaying implementation of his plan until after the 2012 elections?
The president is a smart man and a good politician. He knows how unpopular this "reform" will be when the public realizes what has happened to their health care system. Thus, he is delaying implementation at the same time he is trying to accelerate passage. Let the voter beware.
