THE EDITOR, Sir:
Why must the good always suffer for the bad?
Cornwall Courts Housing Scheme is the second-largest housing project in Jamaica, with the highest percentage of working/tax-paying individuals, mostly police, teachers and the majority of Montego Bay middle managers/supervisors of the various businesses.
With this said, why is it the road to this community can't be fixed?
Rose Heights and Farm Heights have been spruced up and roads paved over a dozen times in the last 10 years since I have lived in Cornwall Courts. So much to the point the citizens/taxi drivers of Cornwall Courts have to use these communities' road as the main way of getting home, even though it is a longer journey and costs more on the pocket in terms of fuel.
How fair can it be for these two communities to constantly get their roads paved and community spruced up and Cornwall Courts citizens can't get their road paved when they pay three times the amount of taxes the residents/citizens of these other communities, combined, pay?
It hurts! We are not asking for handouts; all we need is a good road to our humble abode.
