No doubt we WILL qualify our $30 Tabs Initiative if things keep going like this
Here’s what I’m hearing:
Email from Beth Munson: “Hi Tim. We got 333 signatures at the Stanwood-Camano Fair. It was super popular. Folks were lining up to sign. Thanks for sponsoring this.”
Mike Hetzel: “I can’t believe how easy it is to collect sigs for this one, Tim. I just say $30 tabs and people know exactly what I mean. Only one guy said no. Over 500 sigs coming your way.”
Michael Messmore: “I picked up the 100 petitions from Longview Office Depot last Thursday. Been collecting ever since. Everybody’s signing. Should get my first 1000 by end of this week.”
There’s not a doubt in my mind that we WILL qualify if things keep going like this. It’s the quickest start we’ve ever had. But we can’t get cocky. That December 31st deadline is 5 months away.
We need everyone to help. Voters are anxious to sign, they just heroic supporters like you asking them to.
Successful signature drives aren’t complicated. You need a bunch of supporters who will donate and collect signatures.
And this is SUCH a worthy effort. Voters have twice voted for $30 vehicle tabs. Yet state and local governments have taken that away from us and now taxpayers are facing skyrocketing car tab taxes. We can’t let them get away with that. Our $30 Tabs Initiative gets rid of weight fees and other taxes imposed by state government, vehicle fees imposed by cities, and all car tab taxes imposed by Sound Transit. Initiative 947 says that cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, motorcycles, motor homes, and other vehicles only need to pay a flat, reasonable $30 to be licensed. That’s fair. We already pay a huge sales tax to buy and a huge gas tax to use, it’s not fair to charge us an outrageously expensive 3rd time just for owning a vehicle.
Our initiative is gonna help a lot of people.
Do what scores of other supporters have already done: send me an email (just hit reply) and let me know how many petitions you want, your address, and your phone number. I will find an Office Depot or Staples near you, order the petitions for you, and all you need to do is pick them up. It is a petition distribution revolution that is giving our signature drive AN INCREDIBLY FAST START. Please help us make this
