Puget Sound voters have the chance to raise their taxes by $54 billion this fall – property taxes, car taxes, sales taxes, etc. – and not reduce traffic congestion at all!
That is the Sound Transit offer on the November ballot.
As public radio points out, we could try reduce congestion sooner, and for less money, but unfortunately that is not what we can vote for this fall.
Maybe Sound Transit bureaucrats will try again, with a package that would actually help reduce traffic congestion, if they lose in November?
