Burke High School needs a new football field, among other things. The cost of fixing flooding will be astronomical. Our roads are deplorable.

We have paid, and I emphasize we, $3.3 million to repair “the Joe.” Why not use gate money to pay for the problems at the baseball field?

I realize that if the city was so foolish as to help fund a multimillion-dollar field on shaky ground, the city should be the one to pay. But I am the city, and I don’t want my money going down an endless hole.

Somebody wake up.
