Letter to Sen. Patty Murray

June 5, 2002

I believe the majority of King County citizens (if given the chance to vote) would say DO NOT APPROVE ANY FEDERAL FUNDS FOR LIGHT RAIL OR MODIFICATION OF THE BUS TUNNEL!

We want an objective cost/benefit analysis of options for a balanced and integrated transportation plan. That would be more vanpools, more and better buses and monorail.

Any independent cost/benefit analysis (and what could be more logical than doing that?) would show that light rail is the least beneficial for the highest cost. It is insane to support light rail!

(Such an independent analysis was completed at personal cost of some dedicated citizens BEFORE the escalation of cost and reduction of route for LR began, with very clear, very certain results showing light rail to be the least effective at the highest cost. I can get you a copy of that report if you wish to see it.)
