Regionalism: Can’t we all just get along?

There are a few costs to that I-90 exit that's coming in Avon. First, there are the income taxes that will be shared and then, there's the toll it took on one of the only regional government agencies we have. Now, if our elected officials can't make these kinds of decisions together, what about the big decisions that real regionalism will demand? On the other hand, maybe this is a sign of progress. After all, nobody said it would be easy. We're talking regionalism with county commissioners from around the region, this morning at 9:00.
