Statement: I've decided to once again file as a
candidate to use the Voters' Pamphlet to attract readers to my blog
http://stopeastlinknow.blogspot.com. I do so with no desire to win and
will not ask for nor accept any financial support. Rather than
asking for votes I urge residents "view" some of the 400+ posts on my blog
concerning the failure of their legislators and city councils (and media) to
respond to Sound Transit and WSDOT incompetence.
Bellevue and Redmond city councils, who
could have disallowed permits Sound Transit needed for East Link, instead
promoted a light rail extension that will devastate the route into Bellevue and
increase, not decrease, I-90 cross-lake and corridor congestion.
That access for 48th District commuters will be limited to two stations, far from where most
live. That all but a tiny fraction of their huge increase in ST3 taxes
will be spent extending Central Link to Everett and Tacoma.
legislation is needed to limit the WSDOT I-405 HOT to a single lane where fees
are raised to what's required to maintain 45 mph with everyone allowed access
to 2nd lane. 48th District residents should demand
"more" from those responsible.
