$2.4 million in “stimulus money” for a pedestrian bridge in Belen (a Channel 7 story yesterday said it was $3 million, but the story is not online). Here’s a press release on the bridge. Somehow I suspect that this bridge is not only not worth $2.4 million in terms of economic benefit. What is all the more ironic is that Belen is furloughing government workers for lack of $145,000.
Brings up the question: where was AFSCME when the Rail Runner started rolling down the tracks?
