Things got started last year but now all work has stopped. Who knows why. The citizens, especially those in the low lying downtown area, are up in arms that she is spending money on building decorative walls by the airport and putting up statues every where you look. Why is money being spent on these things, they ask, when the wall needs to be repaired NOW!
We are just lucky that Dean missed us. Otherwise downtown would have been heavily damaged and certainly under a lot of water.
these are wire cages full of rocks meant to stop the surge, or at least break it up
Here's what they looked like after the little bit of Dean we got passed by.
I don't, and legally can't, get involved with island politics. But on this issue, I agree with the people. I see more value in fixing this wall than spending money putting up a bust of Hidalgo on main street. We'll see if the voices get heard.
