Letter: 21st century entrace solution

Innovations from technology companies like Google and Tesla will soon deliver “robot” vehicles that will drastically increase the capacity of current roadways while improving speed, convenience, safety and fuel efficiency. With technology like Uber, fewer people will need to own a vehicle, drastically reducing parking needs. Technology entrepreneurs can solve our entrance problem. Spending another $500k of taxpayer money to study an 18th-century technology solution just keeps us stuck in the past. Instead, encourage free-market solutions without wasting precious taxpayer dollars. Likewise, I suspect that a creative use of technology could reduce the amount of people and square footage necessary for government offices in the valley, and save a fortune of taxpayer money building the Taj Mahal.

Grateful for Boebert


All the liberal letters denigrating Lauren Boebert’s Second Amendment support are mere extensions of Trump Detangement Syndrome. Gun-haters believe limiting law-abiding citizens’ gun rights will decrease crime.
