Letter to the Editor of the N&O, Dec. 20, 2013
Here is to the Cary Town Council for delivering a lump of coal to its CTran transit users for Christmas.
The Council voted unanimously to increase all fares, despite acknowledging in interviews with Cary News reporter that the fare increase was not really necessary, but just a plan to shift costs from the municipality to riders. They even did away with the free rides for those over 65.
Council member Gale Adcock, a Democrat who now seeks a seat in the NC House (District 61), went along with the rest of the Council despite admitting to the Cary News that the affluent town of Cary could absorb these costs.
I want to find out why Council members voted as they did, but have been unable to get responses, as the Council has no voice mail at City Hall and they don’t seem responsive to email.
