      1. I will not be surprised if we see an initiative from Stanton, et al. – they know this is their last year to fuck us.

      2. I don’t want to give them any ideas, but unfortunately it is only March, but there might be a blessing with the initiatives. The cost per signature is getting higher, thanks to record turnout. The signature threshold is based on gubernatorial elections, not off-year elections.

      3. A good thing that, hopefully it means less nonsense from the usual suspects including the BIAW and Eyman in the next 4 years.

      4. Even if they do manage to get something on the ballot this year we will have 4 months of Link running before election day.

      5. I predict there will still be a few more attempts to screw with Sound Transit at least until opponents are convinced it is a waste of time and money.

  1. Expect an initiative campaign to attempt to make this happen anyhow. My understanding is that Stanton wanted to run an initiative campaign on “Governance Reform” for the last election, but that the GOPers talked him out of it by insisting that all their combined efforts should be directed towards Rossi winning the gubernatorial election instead. The main argument for that approach was that once Rossi was in office they could kill ST in a variety of ways anyhow.

    Stanton hasn’t given up on his crusade to stop mass transit in this region – don’t expect him to go away.
