Rep. Doug Thomas in the Times Record

Representative Doug Thomas had a response to Douglas Rooks' commentary of last week published in the Times Record today.

A salient paragraph reads as follows:

I have been a critic of the DOT for the last five years, but with good reason: We give them more money year after year and our roads get worse. We’re told MDOT has reduced its number of employees by 25 percent, yet personnel services now consume 46 percent of the budget, up from 40 percent of a much smaller budget 10 years ago. We have one employee in the office who gets a $49,000 benefit package on top of his salary.
