|Hypocrite: Townsend on Facebook|
Not only is Mr Townsend one of the worst environmental enemies (as chronicled on this page -- see our "Top Articles" series in the right column) to serve office in any State, he also has zero interest in quality of life and green transportation that includes walking and biking. His district IS entropy made visible, with infrastructure at least as bad or worse than most 3rd world countries.
Here are a few local examples, found just in Ogletown:
|"Pathway" connecting Cherokee Woods with Our Redeemer Church/Chestnut Hill Estates.|
|"Bike Path" along Route 4, in front of the Christina Early Education Center. Zero maintenance or repair.|
|"Curb ramp" and pathway between Ogletown Rd and Route 4 at D&H Jamaican. Not only is this not ADA-compliant, it has never been maintained in any way, much less rehabbed or resurfaced.|
|Also along the pathway connection above; a major tripping hazard, the result of settling concrete slabs and zero maintenance or repair.|
Death trap: Posted speed limit of 50
mph (55-60 prevailing) in front of
Ogletown area schools.
Despite being one of the most, if not the most disenfranchised regions of the State, these legislators go on enjoying broad support among their constituents, easily defeating their challengers in each election cycle.
