Judy Graves of Ypsilanti, N.D., voted against the measure to raise taxes for roads. But she says she and others nonetheless wrote to Gov. John Hoeven and asked him to stop Old 10 from being ground up because it still carries traffic to a Cargill Inc. malting plant. She says the county has mismanaged its finances and badly neglected roads.

Public disinvestment is the only solution to these anti-social trolls, and it’s not a bad solution either. Thank you, Judy Graves, for helping kick off the greatly scaled back and heavily tolled highway system that this land needs to survive.
