I salute Eric Richardson. His comments on the propsed $1.75 million in federal funding for a parking garage are right on the mark. I don't live in Danville. I live in Junction. I have never had a problem parking in Danville.
The money for the garage could be better spent on education and housing. A homeless shelter would be nice. Oh, maybe the homeless people could sleep in all those empty parking spaces.
A parking garage is not going to bring business to Danville, a city which seems to be fading fast. Please get the message, Mr. Fletcher, people are getting out of Dodge , er, Danville as fast as they can.
