Joe Tooley: Golden idea

Regarding the Jan. 14 editorial “ Dream booster”: A nation that invests in its infrastructure such as roads, bridges and seaports lays the groundwork for its future prosperity.

Allowing our residents to attend community colleges tuition-free is another investment in our country's infrastructure. Those graduates will have enhanced careers and will pay for their education with the taxes they will earn from their improved salaries. They will contribute to the national well-being by being educated, dedicated and appreciated.
