Not that it's much of a surprise, but today Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn again made clear that he opposes Initiative 1125, which was bought and paid for by one of his leading critics, Bellevue developer Kemper "McGinn is Knifing Seattle Retail" Freeman.
The mayor announced this morning that he's urging Seattle residents to "vote no" on Freeman's anti-tolling, light-rail-derailing I-1125 because, as McGinn put it, the measure would "harm transit."
I'm not sure why McGinn waited until the day before election day to sign an anti-1125 resolution that the Seattle City Council passed unanimously a week ago. (UPDATE: Mayoral spokesperson Lori Patrick tells me, "We were seeking clarification regarding legal requirements related to the mayor’s signature.")
But there you have it: McGinn says vote no.
