In the March 30 edition of The Advocate, state Treasurer John Kennedy is quoted as saying, “Our roads suck. They are axle-breaking insults.” Whereas DOTD Secretary Sherri LeBas is quoted as saying, “The interstates are in the best condition they’ve been in for the last 20 years.” While The Advocate writer suggests there is disagreement, I note that these statements are not necessarily contradictory.
