City deserves fair share

I voted for Gov. Larry Hogan even though I usually vote Democratic because Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown screwed up the health care plan, and I would rather have an unproven person for governor than a proven failure.

Does Governor Hogan realize he received 29,158 votes from people living in Baltimore City? That is more votes than he received in 15 of the 20 counties he won. So why are these small counties getting all the transportation money and Baltimore City is receiving nothing ("Picking up the pieces after the Red Line," July 24)?

As Dan Rodricks said, it is the Baltimore senators and delegates who voted for the gas tax in the first place ("Marylanders who opposed gas tax reap its benefits," July 22).

I am perfectly willing to pay more money in a gas tax if the money is solely used for transportation purposes. With more than 10 percent of the state's residents (and even more workers), at least 10 percent of the money should have been allocated to Baltimore.
