The election for Pierce County Executive may not seem relevant to our efforts for mass transit in our city and region. However, this year’s Pierce County Executive election will be pivotal for us.
Rick Talbert, a strong mass transit advocate, is facing Bruce Dammeier, a vocal opponent to Sound Transit 3.
The next Pierce County Executive will serve on the Sound Transit Board and other transit organizations. By November 8, Pierce County will either have Rick Talbert, an intelligent advocate and strong partner for our future, or we will have to deal with his opponent, an obstructionist who will wage war from within. Rumors also have Rick’s opponent looking to run for Governor in 2020.
We can’t sit idle.
We need Rick Talbert as the next Pierce County Executive to get our mass transit projects completed there, but also here in Seattle, King County, and Snohomish County. Please come join Rick on Wednesday, October 12 at 5 PM to hear him speak. Please make a donation as well — every dollar will count. More below.
