Juneau bus fee sickening

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, August 11, 2004

I am very disappointed the city has decided that senior citizens and people of disabilities must now pay bus fees to increase revenues here in Juneau (Empire, Tuesday, Aug. 10). What is more important for a community than providing these essential services to those most in need?

I have witnessed much political debate on the pages of the Juneau Empire, yet hoped we could share some fundamental values that define who we are as a community. Is there no other way to earn money than charging $12 a month on those with a fixed and limited income? It makes me sick.
