4A will bring jobs

Dear Editor:

I think some people are missing a major point of 4A. Yes, it is a tax increase.

The biggest point that has been missed about 4A is the fact that it brings much more to our valley then an upgraded transportation system … it brings jobs. And these will be good jobs with benefits that RFTA will provide for everything from drivers to support people.

It will bring construction jobs. Building new bus lanes. Building new facilities. Building new parking areas, parking garages. Building new bus terminals … The list goes on and on.

Just when our economy needs the one thing that will drive it: JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.

Good jobs, good-paying jobs, lasting jobs.

“It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires in people’s minds.” ” Samuel Adams
