Letters to the Editor
While I certainly can understand the previous Sammamish writer’s passionate pleas for the passage of Initiative 594 from her perspective, she is sadly misinformed or indifferent to what the 18-page initiative actually says.
Community Events, September 2014
I wanted to counter the falsely simplistic letter to the editor on Aug. 29 – “I-594 Will Save Lives in Our State” – that tried to explain a massive 18 page gun-control initiative in 18 seconds.
The 2014 Kirkland Summer Concert Series came to a close a couple of weeks ago, and now that the dust has settled - wow, we are feeling so very grateful.
So many of us feel powerless to affect change in the midst of turmoil at home and across the globe. But there is something we can do to save lives right here in Washington – vote “yes” on Initiative 594 this fall.
As I sat in traffic trying to drive up the I-5 north, I bemoaned the lack of funding for our state’s infrastructure. About 67 percent of all of Washington’s roads are in poor or mediocre condition according to infrastructurereportcard.org, and needs an estimated $6.3 billion to remedy all infrastructural weaknesses.
