Jacob --

>From the recent fight to save King County Metro, we all know about the need
to find long-term solutions to our county's and state's transportation

Hundreds of bridges are unsafe, cars pollute too many toxins, and not enough
neighborhoods have adequate bus service. To top it off, state and local
governments lack enough resources to solve these problems.

That's why earlier this year Futurewise and Transportation Choices Coalition
launched this statewide, multiyear campaign "Transportation for Washington."
We've worked hard in Olympia and across the state to raise awareness of
transportation issues, build a movement of organizations and people, and win
real results like saving Metro.

I'm excited to announce that County Executive Dow Constantine, six mayors,
and 42 other King County public officials have endorsed our three core
principles for transportation reform that will help transform our
communities and set a better vision for our future:


*	Prioritize fixing broken infrastructure to save lives.

*	Expand transit.

*	Build great, healthy communities.

Our King County leaders, together with 39 other public officials from all
across the state who have already endorsed the principles, are calling for
fundamental reform that provides transportation choices for all people,
stops air and water pollution, and rebuilds our economy.

In endorsing the three core principles, King County Councilmember Larry
Phillips, Chair of the County Transportation Committee, said:

"Transportation for Washington is a great roadmap for better infrastructure,
better jobs and providing better choices for how people move every day. We
need to start now, reforming transportation policy so it's balanced and
innovative ensuring our state can stay competitive in the global economy."

Issaquah Mayor Ava Frisinger said:

"Our neighborhoods depend on affordable, convenient transit and safe
streets. It's how we build strong, healthy communities. Transportation for
Washington's focus on smart policies that will help us build vibrant,
livable communities that works for everyone -- transit riders, drivers,
freight movers and pedestrians -- is the right direction for our state."

State Senator Scott White, Vice Chair of the Senate Transportation
Committee, said:

"Transit ridership is going up as more people look for ways to avoid high
gas prices and still get to their jobs and school. But funding for transit
hasn't been able to keep up. To save our transit and ensure it can keep up
with rising demand, we need to provide flexible, permanent funding sources
for it, and that's what Transportation for Washington is fighting for."
