 While others were saying it could not be done, Parker stood strong and as the newest appointee to the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority successfully fought to lower the toll for daily commuters using the bridge. It's the first- and only-time bridge tolls have been lowered in the 27-year history of the bridge.
