Mayor Tom Is, Again, Inflating the Truth
Angela Hunt has been doing some research. Mayor Tom keeps saying the cost of the Trinity River toll road has more than tripled because of inflation. So Hunt put together a table showing what effect the Department of Labor’s inflation index would have had on the cost of the road. She also looked specifically at the Highway Construction Price Index.
And, best of all, she found a construction inflation index from Tom’s old company, Turner Construction. The results are in this table.
Guess what? Tom ain’t tellin’ it like it is. Again. --Jim Schutze
