Local Government Failures

City governments are responsible for roads and storm sewers within their city boundaries.

County governments are responsible for the roads and storm sewers of unincorporated areas within their boundaries. But they are also responsible for waste water treatment and clean water distribution.

Large cities and counties typically don’t make infrastructure maintenance a priority. These are the most expensive structures municipalities are required to manage and expenses soar when the pipes fail.

Our water pipes leak and create sink holes that collapse our streets.  Cities and counties fail to stick to their knitting and need to make their infrastructure their top priority. Consequently, when this ill-maintained infrastructure breaks, it creates damage that also has to be repaired.

Rural cities and counties tend to do a better jobs with infrastructure because they employ their own crews and do a better job working with contractors.

School Boards for big cities and urbanized counties are rigged to focus on building schools rather than controlling the curriculum. They squander $billions because they always manage their funding through bond sales. The curriculum is rife with political correctness and liberal indoctrination. Schools need to concentrate on reading, writing and normal math.
