I read TimesLedger Newspapers’ article about Gov. David Patterson and Mayor Michael Bloomberg fighting about helping the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“Bloomy rips guv’s plan to help MTA,” Feb. 11), which is a sore issue with me these days mostly because I believe the MTA has been wasting money for years and is holding on to real estate that generates no income.
It does not have the money to fund these projects and I do not believe they are necessary. MTA CEO Jay Walder did an interview with a Staten Island newspaper and admitted he could not say the agency was spending each dollar wisely.
TimesLedger should look into the MTA’s holdings and expose them so the MTA will be forced to sell them off to cut its deficits instead of cutting service and holding the public hostage.
