Morning Poll: Road Maintenance an Election Year Issue?

Will road maintenance become an election year issue in Arlington?

Last week the Sun Gazette reported that supporters of Green Party candidate for County Board Audrey Clement were trying to make the case that Arlington’s roads are crumbling — and the county’s political leaders should be held responsible for it.

County Board Chair Mary Hynes acknowledged that local roadways were “rough,” and that road maintenance had fallen behind in recent years, but said funding added several years ago should help allow Arlington to repave roads every 15 years.

How important will the state of local roads be when you go into the voting booth on March 27?
