Chris Curci: Sees wasted work
Chris Curci: Sees wasted work
In Philadelphia, Chris Curci sees stimulus dollars being wasted.
When Chris Curci heard that stimulus funds would provide billions of dollars for infrastructure improvements, he hoped that some of the money would go to repair Philadelphia's aging bridges.

Instead he sees road crews repaving a bunch of streets in his neighborhood that he says were in good shape. Some $12.7 million in stimulus funds is going to resurface streets citywide.

Ironically, the one street that could use a new top hasn't been touched at this point, he said.

"We're spending money to 'fix' things that don't need any fixing," said Curci, 28, a paralegal who attends law school. "They are repaving roads that are in perfectly fine condition. What a waste."

Curci said he supports the president's $787 billion stimulus program, but would like to see the money be put to upgrade bridges and roads that are in real need for repair.
