For Immediate Release |2.23.18 | Friends of Kevin Scott Chambers | (503) 884 – 7827 | KevinForOregon.com
The unfortunate Traffic delay in Salem today 2.23.18 that caused many people to be upwards of 1 hour or more late to work, is just another example of why we need a third bridge. There is no logical reason to stand against a bridge that is desperately needed. The fact that many state and local leaders continue to stand against this needed bridge, shows a true lack of leadership.
We already have bridges that are at capacity, with a city and surrounding area increasing in population. When an earthquake hits, and both those bridges crumble, all those west of the Willamette will be isolated. I’m selfish, I don’t want to be separated from my wife when an earthquake hits.
Today’s backup is just one of many reasons why I am running for State Representative for District 20, to make sure that we have a seismically stable third bridge, that will decrease the frequencies and length of these type of backups.
