Tell Sound Transit what you think about ST3 expansion plan

The ST3 expansion vote on November 8, 2016 could possibly be a $50 billion tax hike for Puget Sound residents.

Sound Transit's 25-year plan to expand light rail and bus rapid transit will be up for vote in the urban areas of King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties on November 8, 2016. The current proposal is in a public comment phase that ends April 29th, 2016.

It's important for you to share your feedback and thoughts on this plan before April 29th when the public comment period closes. This could be a $50 billion tax increase on cars, trucks, vehicles, sales tax and for the first time in Puget Sound history, property taxes.

That's a massive tax bill (over a massive time frame) to support for an agency that has consistently had problems in the past delivering what it promised on time or on budget to taxpayers.

You can take this ST3 survey to register your feedback and help bring about the most taxpayer friendly proposal that voters will decide in the November election. It will allow you to give some clear priorities about what construction projects should be emphasized but the only format for discussing the taxation portion is in an open comments section at the end. Be sure to add your comments about how much is too much to pay for this proposed expansion of light rail.
