Shoreline Prop 1 is falling far short of 60% yes vote; Eyman's car tabs initiative passes

Thursday, November 7, 2019



An additional 3360 votes were counted today, bringing the Shoreline Prop 1 vote well over the total vote requirement. However, the new votes were as evenly divided as the previous votes.

The approval percentage went up one point to 53%. 60% is the requirement.

At this rate, there aren't enough votes left to increase the Yes vote to 60%.

Initiative 976 is being soundly defeated in King county, but passed in the rest of the state. Since it's a state initiative King county is prohibited from collecting fees, even if voters here approve.

So car tabs will be $30 but Shoreline will not have funds for sidewalks and Lake Forest Park may need to slow its road maintenance.

Sound Transit is meeting to decide what to do to continue system expansion with major funding cut, and Gov. Inslee has halted planned transportation projects.

County and state will be suing to try to get the initiative overturned in court.

Okay Shoreline City Council -give us an opportunity to vote for Parks AND a SEPARATE opportunity to vote for a new pool. AND don't change the acronym again - that was lame.
Okay Sound Transit - I guess you didn't need to cut all those trees down while the birds were nesting....
