Traffic in Bellevue is no joke, but new Bellevue City Mayor Claudia Balducci seems to think that it is. At least, that’s what her remarks in this video produced by FUSE Washington, a left-leaning organization heavily promoting Prop 1.
When asked what will happen if Prop 1 fails on April 22nd, Balducci told reporters, “That’s why we’ve come up with this back-up plan, a Lake Washington zip line.”
FUSE’s joke “New Commuter Toolkit” also included a Slip ‘N Slide from Capitol Hill to downtown Seattle.
Commuters traveling across Lake Washington everyday expect more from local government leaders. Rather than make jokes about what will happen if Prop 1 doesn’t pass, Claudia Balducci, along with Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen and Redmond Mayor John Marchione, should consider asking King County Metro to stop threatening King County residents with false information, and adopt a fiscally responsible budget instead.
