Red Herrings?

Since when is fiscal prudence considered a red herring?

My business career was spent doing risk analysis. Simply put, determining the probability of what could go wrong and the resultant financial impact if something should go wrong.

Low probability – low impact;
high probability – high impact: 
……easy decisions – do it, don’t do it.

This transportation referendum is not so simple. We should ask: what is the probability that sufficient funding will continuously be available to deliver the desired outcomes and if not, what would that cost be to the taxpayers of Hillsborough County?
