Check out this sign at City Hall in Pittsburg. It’s a reaction to the proposal by top state lawmakers to divert gas tax money from cities and counties to help close the $26 billion budget deficit.
Pittsburg and other cities will lose millions of dollars for their road maintenance programs if the Legislature adopts the cuts. Something tells me that City Manager Marc Grisham had a hand in making this sign. I’m told that around City Hall, they refer to the “Big Five” as the “Gang of Five.”
