We’re sick and tired of tax increases.
We’re sick and tired of Olympia’s refusal to implement Auditor Sonntag’s $3.2 billion in tax savings.
We’re sick and tired of politicians telling us there’s not enough money ‘left over’ to fulfill the citizens’ top transportation priority: reducing traffic congestion (the top priority should be funded with the first tax dollar, not the last).
We’re sick and tired of not being given the chance to choose what we really want at the ballot box.
And finally, we’re sick and tired of paying billions of dollars every year in transportation-related taxes and watching politicians divert those revenues to non-transportation spending.
I-985 is a smart, comprehensive transportation improvement proposal funded without higher taxes — it dedicates existing revenues to pay for its Auditor-endorsed-priorities.
We have less than 30 days left. Earlier this week, US Bank signed off on my loan application for $250,000. That second mortgage on my home will be used to ensure the I-985 campaign has the funding necessary to pay the bills. We ask that you please help us pay off this huge loan as quickly as possible.

However you want to do it, please send in your most generous contribution TODAY.
We’ve got less than 30 days to get I-985 over the finish line.
FULL STEAM AHEAD!

P.S. Here’s a quick summary of this year’s initiative:
ReduceCongestion.org I-985 implements the State Auditor’s recommendations to reform the Department of Transportation and reduce traffic congestion by using existing public resources more effectively. It opens carpool lanes to everyone during non-peak hours, requires local governments to synchronize traffic lights on heavily-traveled arterials and streets, and increases roadside assistance funding to clear out accidents faster with the implementation overseen by the State Auditor. These policies are funded by taxes and charges we already pay: 15% of vehicle sales taxes, revenue from fines generated from red light traffic cameras, and a percentage that previously went to art on transportation-related public works projects. Finally, I-985 doesn’t impose tolls, but it institutes critical taxpayer protections if tolls are created and levied.
