Inspiring stories about supporters working hard on $30 Tabs Initiative
Tuesday, June 5, 2018 | Tim Eyman
Super supporter Bob Henkel from Tacoma gave me his progress report:
63 filled petition sheets so far (1260 sigs). Remember, Bob is the extraordinary man who helped get thousands of signatures for our original $30 tabs initiative in 1999 (I-695). And he worked then and is working now on collecting signatures despite the fact that he only has the use of one arm! Amazing.
A 102 year old woman from Spokane
Who happens to be blind, signed and mailed in her petition. As if that wasn’t enough, she filled it up with sigs from her neighbors!! Fantastic!
Got a call from Donna yesterday from Puyallup
She said she’s filled up one sheet and asked for 3 more. She had just paid for her parents $163 car tab renewal because there was no way they could afford them on their fixed income from Social Security.
Tell me your stories and I’ll share them with everyone here.
I-976 provides us with a unique opportunity to send a message to state and local government politicians that we’re done being taken for granted.
But it’s just that: an opportunity. I urge everyone to take full advantage of it by helping us get I-976 over the finish line.
