LA MALFA WATCH — SEPTEMBER 2018

By Robert Provenzano

 

So, Mr. LaMalfa, whatever happened to infrastructure?  Where did it go?  Why am I falling into potholes big enough for my truck to fit into?  While you are so busy giving tax money to people with plenty of money, we, your constituents are spending our hard earned dollars repairing our vehicles after driving on the US highway system.  There is more to infrastructure than the Sites Reservoir.

 

Mr. LaMalfa wants you to know that he passed:
