Fee not needed to be sustainable

Editor:

We have been reading for months now about fees being increased to improve sustainability. Today, I read another article in The Chronicle, (“Sustainability fee passes temporarily; ASUU must reconcile versions of bill,” March 11). But what are these so-called sustainable projects that this money would go toward?

I have a few suggestions of my own. As I walked to class Tuesday through the maintenance parking lot, I counted six trucks just idling without anyone inside. So what, my $2.50 is going to go to our lovely maintenance people to waste gas and pollute the air? I walk, run, ride TRAX and ride the bus. How much more “green” can I be? Stop making feeble attempts to appeal to the less educated green enthusiast and take some action.
