Thought you might be inter­est­ed in this…

This Jan­u­ary, the State Leg­is­la­ture and Gov­er­nor will be faced with tough choic­es – should trans­porta­tion tax­es be raised or ser­vices be cut?

To help deci­sion-mak­ers, the Wash­ing­ton State Trans­porta­tion Com­mis­sion (WSTC) will soon be send­ing you an on-line sur­vey cov­er­ing trans­porta­tion fund­ing and pol­i­cy issues.  [edi­tor’s note: That would be me because I’m already signed up — if you’re not signed up, see the next para­graph] We hope you will con­sid­er respond­ing.  The results will be report­ed direct­ly to the Gov­er­nor and Leg­is­la­ture at the start of the 2013 ses­sion.  We already have 17,000 WA cit­i­zens who have indi­cat­ed a will­ing­ness to help.  Many have also invit­ed their neigh­bors to participate.

If you know of any neigh­bors or friends who would like to share their opin­ions or con­cerns about how to fund and improve Wash­ing­ton State’s trans­porta­tion sys­tem – our roads, tran­sit, rail, air­ports, bike paths and side­walks — please for­ward this email to them.  All they need to do to receive the sur­vey is reg­is­ter for the Voice of Wash­ing­ton State (VOWS) sur­vey pan­el at:


You may let them know that the VOWS pro­gram is a new, online pub­lic input pro­gram uti­liz­ing short sur­veys that allows WA cit­i­zens an oppor­tu­ni­ty to share their thoughts on what our state’s pri­or­i­ties should be and how we should pay for them.  The VOWS pro­gram has been fea­tured in the Seat­tle Times, Spokesman Review, Yaki­ma Her­ald, and numer­ous local papers as a way for cit­i­zens to give direct input to the state lead­ers on the tough issues fac­ing our state.

For more infor­ma­tion on the VOWS pro­gram or WSTC, please call or email us at 360.705.7070 or transc@wsdot.wa.gov or vis­it www.wstc.wa.gov.
