This was not my personal plea it came from Transportation for Washington.  Here is some information about them. 


Transportation for Washington is working to build livable communities in Washington State by connecting people with transit to where they live, work, and play. 

A coalition effort led by Futurewise and Transportation Choices Coalition.

Balance is in the mind of the beholder. I do not argue with your plea. But 
the fact remains and will remain that the majority of voters drive, at least 
as long as we tend to live in the burbs. So I suspect (especially this year) 
that her request is about as good as we're going to see.

On Tuesday, Gov Gregoire proposed a $3.6 billion transportation package that 
dedicates 72% to roads and 4% to transit. Amazingly this is a step forward 
from the past, but well-short of being balanced. The legislature will now 
consider the proposal. Please email your legislator and ask them to balance 
the package and then pass it.
