We’re making a huge announcement this Tuesday — you’re gonna love it!!
Working together over the past 18 years, we’ve saved taxpayers over $35 billion from our various tax initiatives.
With our 4 voter-approved 2/3-for-taxes initiatives, we’ve stopped Olympia from raising taxes billions more.
Thanks to you, we’ve done extraordinary things.
This Tuesday, we’re making a huge announcement — you’re gonna love it!!
I/we take a lot of flak — but that just means we’re over the target. Opponents only attack the effective.
A newly elected Seattle City Council member recently said: “Tim Eyman’s legacy lives on, and we have to figure out ways to get enough revenue here.” (http://www.capitolhilltimes.com/Content/News/Homepage-Rotating-Articles/Article/Mosqueda-shares-victory-with-voters/26/538/5345).
It’s not my legacy, it is the voters’ legacy. Our initiatives thrive because the voters’ embrace them.
Solving Problems Politicians Won’t. That’s what Jack, Mike, and I have been doing for the past 18 years. But instead of us making the final decision, we’ve trusted the voters to decide.
Elitists think that regular voters and average taxpayers are the unwashed masses who cannot be trusted to make the “right” decision for their community.
That’s crap. Joe and Josephine Citizen are perfectly capable of deciding what direction they want their government to go. They’re tired of being ignored. They’re fed up with being talked down to.
Tuesday’s exciting announcement will make our supporters smile and our opponents frown.
It means we’re over the target.
We’re working super hard to Bring Back Our $30 Tabs and stick it to Sound Transit — here’s two ways you can help us:
1) ask for petitions and help collect signatures (collect 1000+ signatures and earn yourself an uber-orange $30 Tabs t-shirt — John Berry and other Ironing Board brigade members who’ve been diligently getting signatures at the Pierce County Annex recently earned them).
2) donate (just think about how much you’ve saved over the years from our other two successful $30 Tabs Initiatives).
The people are clearly on our side:
The end of December deadline for signatures is fast approaching so we need all hands on deck.
DO WHAT THESE SUPPORTERS HAVE DONE: Get a bunch of petitions. Just hit “reply” to this email and let me know how many petitions you want, your address, and your phone number. I will find an Office Depot, Staples, Minuteman Press, or Kinko’s near you, order the petitions for you, and all you need to do is pick them up. You can get 3 petitions for less than a $1. You can get 10 petitions for less than $3. You can get 100 petitions for $30. They’re dirt cheap with super fast turnaround. You can pick up your petitions in an hour. It is a petition distribution revolution that more and more supporters across the state are taking advantage of.
Please contact me RIGHT NOW (firstname.lastname@example.org, cell: 509-991-5295) — I’m ready to help.
The greatest threat to this statewide signature drive is OVERCONFIDENCE. Having qualified 16 initiatives for a statewide public vote over the years, we’ve made it seem easy. It’s not. It’s really tough. The only way we’re gonna make it is with a massive grassroots effort where everyone across the state helps.
