 Save King County Metro

B5qCO9kpmpYAo> Monday's Decision

For several months now, County Executive Dow Constantine and Councilmember &
Transportation Chair Larry Phillips have worked tirelessly to gain the
support of their colleagues in order to pass the congestion relief charge to
save Metro.

Four weeks ago Julia Patterson (who represents Des Moines, Kent, Renton,
Tukwila) became the fifth councilmember to join, helping us secure a
majority of the council. But we still needed a sixth.

Today, two more councilmembers have expressed their support: Jane Hague
(Bellevue, Kirkland, Mercer Island), and Kathy Lambert (Redmond, Issaquah,
Sammamish). [1] That gives us the votes we need to save Metro!

Now, we must hold their feet to the fire.

This is too important. Losing our buses would clog our roads, pollute our
air, and leave tens of thousands of people stranded at their bus stops.

But Councilmembers Julia Patterson, Jane Hague, and Kathy Lambert are
getting an explosive push-back from Tim Eyman and anti-transit lobbyists.

We need to continue to show our support.
TuoD%2FvJDCxW4d> us know you're coming to the council meeting.

Together we got this far. We sent more than 15,000 petitions. Testified more
than 5,000 times. Lined-up outside of public hearings for hours. Made
hundreds of calls to councilmembers.

Together we will win.

Thanks for everything you've done. See you on Monday!


Brock Howell
Field Director
Transportation for Washington
