Kudos to Marc Chase on his column about township trustees having take-home vehicles.

What about the blue collar workers who drive to and from work, steel mills, fast food places etc? No free gas or vehicles paid by local governments. Pay your own way to work.

What about people working for minimum wages, dishing out high prices on gasoline? What's left?

These vehicles cost much more than gas savings! Who pays for insurance and maintenance, tires and the rest?

These vultures wanted these positions. Pay your own way to and from work. They always pick the last piece of meat on the carcass.

They are supposed to be helping us? Yeah, right!
