I am a commuter and I just started a new job that I love. Sadly, I may not be able to stay with it long term if I can't afford the commute because of an increased parking rate (the rate is already excessive!).
Seriously, can't the city government come up with something more creative to fix whatever the "current" crisis is? Through increased taxes here or increased rates there that impact all of us, why do we the people have to continue to bail out the idiots making bonehead decisions affecting matters like the pension fund?
