Rev. Smith, along with $2.4 million in funds, was earmarked today for improving local roads and promoting public transit when in today’s elections Santa Clara County voters overwhelmingly approved Prop 43. Smith was an admittedly “whimsical” last minute addition to the proposition said draftee Michael Fournier (D) who lead the successful Yes-on-43 campaign and believes that “the passage of this act will go a long way toward repairing our county’s badly damaged road and bridges,” and that “Rev. Smith now has no choice other than to grab a shovel and get to work.”
