Suffolk Del. Jones right on tolls

Suffolk Del. Chris Jones is making noise on the tolls that are scheduled to start in July on the Midtown and Downtown tunnels. The delegate is right: they need to slow down and see if there is another way to do this project and, if not, scrap the deal.

And the op-ed Tuesday from Secretary of Transportation Sean Connaughton was so laughable that I don’t know where to start. Instead of trying to tell us what is not in the deal, why not simply release it and let us read it for ourselves? Oh, that’s right. Proprietary.

In my book, there’s no such thing as “proprietary” when you’re talking about binding the taxpayers to a 58-year deal.
