First major snowfall of 2019

The Loop Trolley runs down Delmar Boulevard as snow begins to fall on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. The trolley ended its operations early because of the snow, which is expected to fall though the weekend. Photo by Cristina M. Fletes, cfletes@post-dispatch.com.

I have one thing to say to St. Louis County Executive Sam Page and members of the St. Louis County Council in regard to the Loop Trolley request for more money: not one more cent.

The Loop Trolley is nothing but a money pit, and it makes no sense to throw bad money after good.

A few years ago the St. Louis County Council foolishly approved $3 million for the trolley. All it did was to keep the boondoggle going until it ran out of money again. If those supporting the trolley think it is such a good idea, they should come up with the money. Taxpayers have given enough.
