Unfortunately, Congressman Ed Perlmutter is on the earmark bandwagon.Â His requests for my hometown of Arvada were:
- $6,000,000 – Garrison St flood control
- $600,000 – Wadsworth Trail
- $1,400,000 – 56th Avenue bypass
- $2,600,000 – Clear Creek Overflow project
These sound like fine projects that need funding, but they aren’t a federal concern.Â Instead of using federal funds in this way (raiding our savings accounts through inflation and our wallets through taxation), Ed Perlmutter should leave us to solve local issues locally.
