Hey everyone,

In the following two sentences, why to is not necessary in the first one while it's needed in the second one?

1. He is going to do the laundry and then to drive her tothe school.

2. He views each such interaction as an opportunity to forge a relationship with the employee and to reinforce his idea of company culture with emphasis on independence and innovation.

Thx.

to is equally optional in both sentences.

It really is optional.

Personally, I tend to repeat the "to" when the phrasing gets longer and omit it when it's shorter.

Dear friend,

thx. Do you mean I can choose to add or not to add "to" here? It really doesn't matter. Am I right?
