Will in Seattle is a name-dropping, self-important hypocritical jackass. Seattle liberals aren't.

Sour grapes. You guys are out of touch with reality.

I still don't understand how McGinn can talk with that many SPD dicks in his mouth.

I'm sick of McGinn. We deserve a mayor whose mouth isn't full of SPD cocks.

I want to know where Godden and Harrell stand on this. And Clark, Rasmussen, and Burgess for that matter, but the first two are the ones we have a real chance at replacing.

An MVET would rock.

Seattle has roughly 12,200 block-faces that lack sidewalks. Sidewalks cost roughly $100,000 per block-face to build. Not every block-face in the city necessarily needs a sidewalk though. The Pedestrian Master Plan identified $840 million in pedestrian needs citywide just in its top tier (of five). In order to fund all the Tier 1 PMP improvements, a vehicle license fee would need to be more like $250 per car, if that were your only funding source, and all the revenue went to PMP projects.

Olympia didn't only give us authority to create $100 vehicle license fees. We're also allowed to impose tolls and I think gas taxes. CTAC and City Council chose the VLF mainly because they think it has the best chance of passing.
