One-way street position is important

City Council candidate Gary Thompson recently left a message on our phone, stating his position on downtown one-way streets. Thompson was very emphatic in stating that, “There is no reason for any one-way street downtown.” Perhaps he forgot about how you might drop off a letter at the post office if South Fourth Avenue were two-way. Or maybe he didn’t think of front end loaders and dump trucks picking up snow in two-way traffic. He must like the snarled traffic on Main Street with its two-way traffic and stop signs every block.

If you like the free flow of one-way streets, find out how your council candidate will vote. It will be too late to complain after the election.
