A recent Palm Beach Post editorial, “Time for fiscal restraint, not Florida toll roads to nowhere,” argues that with the pandemic and its effects on the state budget, the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES) should be put on hold. However, I believe this argument couldn’t be further from the truth. If anything, the pandemic has shown us that the M-CORES project is needed, now more than ever.
As a young mom, I’m hopeful for the future, not just for me but for my kids and family. I want them to live in a world that rebounds economically from the pandemic and is set up for success. Part of that is planning now for what our state might look like in 2030.
