Which is Worse - closing Highways or Pools for Political Reasons?


The leading news story in America centers around members of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's staff closing lanes on the highway to punish a Democratic Mayor for not supporting the Governor.

Sound familiar?

This past summer, two Democratic members of the Providence City Council charged that the City pools in their wards were closed by the Taveras Administration as punishment for not supporting the Mayor's tax increase.

Both Providence Council members Davian Sanchez and Sabina Mattos claim Taveras punished their neighborhoods.

As GoLocal reported in October, City Councilman Davian Sanchez said he was told by the Mayor's office would be cemented if he didn't vote for the budget.
"I was told by an aide of the Mayor -- who was just a messenger -- that if I didn't vote for the budget, the pool would be closed, and ultimately cemented," said Sanchez.

Which of these political episodes are worse? Your turn to vote.
