I?ll take quality, thank you

The prevailing wage law was originally enacted to ensure the quality of work done on government projects. It was to protect us from sub-standard contractors that could underbid the best people for the job by paying sub-standard, lower wages to their workers. I want my city and state projects built by the most qualified people available and the prevailing wage protection, which Measure A attempts to do away with, will ensure the best workmanship possible, as it has for several decades now. I?m not in favor of our city and county projects being done by volunteers. While well meaning, it doesn?t always mean they?re qualified. The costs will remain the same but the quality will suffer. I want to be proud of Auburn, not saddened by it. I?m voting no on Measure A. Dan Tomich, Auburn
