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.

That 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.
