ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL WE PACK THE ROOM, tomorrow, Tues, Dec 10, 2pm, County-City Building, Pierce County Council chambers, 930 Tacoma Ave S, 10th floor, Tacoma.
JOIN ME/US FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT SINCE THE ELECTION! Do your best to be there at 2pm (2-3pm we’ll be having chocolate cake that’ll be presented to Councilwoman Pam Roach for her leadership on this issue and I’ll be giving away a $30 Tabs t-shirt to the person there who collected the most I-976 signatures and a shirt to the person there who pays the most for their vehicle tabs). Hearing starts at 3pm – be there early to sign up early so you can testify early.
That room is gonna be packed with pro-Sound Transit crazies bussed in from Seattle so it’s really, really, really important that pro-$30 tabs, pro-976, pro voters show up IN FORCE (just like we did on election day!).
Why is tomorrow’s event so critical?
Bob Ferguson has purposely, intentionally, and maliciously sabotaged I-976 from the beginning. He wants us to believe that he keeps losing in court because of incompetence. No, it’s not incompetence, he’s willfully undermining I-976 despite his obligation to defend it.
Bruce Dammeier has shown tremendous courage and leadership by calling for a vote to intervene by the Pierce County Council. That vote is tomorrow, Tues, Dec 10). He clearly recognizes that the AG is blowing it. He’s stepping up and stepping in to try to clean up the mess that Bob Ferguson has made so far.
With 66% of Pierce County voters in favor of I-976, the council vote should be unanimous. But there are councilmembers who might be hoping they can get away with voting no – who might think you don’t care — who have scheduled the vote on a workday so that you won’t be able to attend. By doing so, they are hoping the only people who show up and testify are all those pro-Sound crazies bussed in from Seattle.
Tomorrow is absolutely critical: the Pierce County Council will vote on whether or not to intervene on behalf of taxpayers. It is critical they do so. And they will only do so IF WE PACK THE ROOM with $30 tabs supporters and demand the Council take over the defense of I-976.
We must move heaven and Earth to pack that room with as many pro-976 citizens as possible. If we don’t, then Bob Ferguson wins by losing this case on purpose.
