Summer is here. July 4 is long past, and "back to school" is creeping into the conversation.

But we in Lincoln Park and other areas west of downtown still have our winter of 2018-'19 potholes. Even sloppy and barely, in years past we've had at least had one visit by a pothole crew long before now.

But there is hope for my bumpy ride up and down Michigan Street. Soon the snow and ice will come and will fill the holes for a smoother, if not safer, ride once again.

Bumpy or slippery, I will make it to vote for sure. Just like I did for the extra sales tax for — street repair.
