Seattle Times letters to the editor

Lawmakers should consider voters on taxes

The people should not always have the final word The Times keeps continuing its attack on the Supreme Court ruling on taxes so I am responding to the March 10 editorial telling legislators they should respect the people’s votes on the two-thirds tax-restriction initiative [“Lawmakers should heed voters on decisions about taxes,” Opinion, March 10]. This…

Lawmakers should listen to voters on taxes

Vote is justified by Seattle’s population Regarding the editorial of Sunday March 10 [“Lawmakers should heed voters on decisions about taxes,” Opinion], I seem to be confused about how state representation works. Could you help clear this up for me? My understanding is that legislative districts are roughly figured on the basis of population and Seattle…

Transportation: Initiative 985

Contradictory and wasteful I’m sure most drivers in the Greater Seattle area know how grueling traffic is. My commute begins around rush hour on Interstate 5 as I make my way to school in the morning. With elections just around the corner, I wish I could join in to vote NO against Initiative 985 [“I-985: Tim Eyman…

Transportation proposals

Eyman’s initiative is worth a shot The state and federal government had 50 years to solve the Puget Sound area’s serious traffic problems [“Federal transportation officials say Eyman’s initiative could be costly to state,” News, Oct. 25]. They saw the congestion, lost work hours, frustration and host of other problems coming and to this day still struggle…

Proposition 1: light rail

Support a good system Your failure to endorse the expansion of light rail is disappointing [“Reject Proposition 1’s tax for light-rail expansion,” editorial, Sept. 28]. We need better transportation choices as soon as possible. Buses will never move people as well as a separate rail system. And if we are to address local jobs and greenhouse-gas emissions,…

Initiative 985: traffic congestion

Check your sources So former state Transportation Secretary Doug MacDonald thinks that I-985 will “actually increase congestion.” [“Would ballot measure relieve traffic jams or worsen them?,” Politics & Government, Oct. 20]. He said, “it’s not going to move us forward” This is from the expert who led the agency that spearheaded and designed the mess we are…

Iniatiative 985: Tim Eyman is losing his touch

Initiative guru Tim Eyman obviously has nothing better to do than constantly pester voters in this state with his latest irrational, ad-populum campaign that will only hamstring basic public interest [“Eyman warns DOT,” page one, Sept. 24]. If Eyman wrote something to better our state’s environmental laws, I might actually vote for it. Instead, he and…

Initiative 985: Trust Tim Eyman

We should not underestimate the wisdom of initiative guru Tim Eyman’s solution to traffic congestion [“Eyman warns DOT,” page one, Sept. 24]. Under his proposed Initiative 985, all carpool lanes will be opened to all drivers during nonpeak hours. (If it’s “nonpeak,” where is the need?) If I-985 is approved by the voters, surely we can expect…
