As if you didn’t need reminding already, today is the last hearing on King County Metro cuts and the possible $20 CRC (congestion reduction charge) to put them off for two years. If you can, we’d strongly recommend you show up to at least counter the misinformed anti-tax crowd that might show up, if anything.
Thursday, July 21st at 6PM
Burien City Council Chambers
400 S.W. 152nd Street
Burien, WA 98166
This hearing is primarily for South King residents. PubliCola reports that seven of nine Councilmembers will attend, including key swing vote Jane Hague. Video and recap from the Seattle hearing.

It looks like they’ve scheduled an additional downtown hearing:
This is from a Larry Phillips email.
The Monday meeting is the day of the actual council vote and a public hearing is required.
Turnout is critical for Burien tonight. A person showing up in Burien equals three in Seattle. We have to make sure this isn’t just viewed by Republicans as a Seattle issue. Folks all over King County depend on our buses. Speaking of which, there is good service (for now) to the Burien Transit Center, a block away from Burien City Hall.
FWIW, #120 from 3rd/Pike to Burien TC: 49 minutes
Link from Westlake to TIB + #140 to Burien TC: 34 min + 10 min transfer + 10 min = 54 min
(But probably closer to 48 min because the schedule timepoint is Southcenter)
