I rode my bike to the shop to pick up our car. County employees recently ground the edges of sidewalk cracks to smooth transitions between each slab of concrete. (Freezing and thawing water wreaks havoc on Colorado’s roads and sidewalks.)
My tax dollars paid for those repairs. I’m glad.
I have lived in other parts of the world where I could not see much government expenditure on local infrastructure. I’m thankful to live in a place where I can see positive results of money I give to the government.
Sometimes I like to focus on the good they’re doing rather than the things I wish they’d do differently. There is a lot of good.
