The Seattle P.I. article 520 bridge tax could lose Sierra Club support quotes from a recent Sierra Club letter to Pierce County Executive John Ladenburg:
"The RTID package contains inappropriate projects and is fraught with structural defects that require changes in the authorizing legislation," the Sierra Club noted. "We do support allowing Sound Transit to proceed separately to the November 2007 ballot..Given the inherent structural defects in RTID and adverse environmental impacts of certain projects, we do not believe that a joint ballot can gain our support. Therefore, the Sierra Club adopts the position that Sound Transit be allowed to proceed to the November 2007 ballot separately."
