Support transit measure

We have an important date coming up, April 28. It’s the day we decide to vote to become a modern county with a transportation plan that takes us into the future.

The Central City Line is a must if we are to be a community that moves forward, not backward. It will bring in $60 million in federal money, and that means great jobs for our region.

But that is only a very small part of the ballot measure. The remainder will not only maintain, but vastly improve basic services for the elderly, disabled and working poor who depend heavily on the reliable service that the Spokane Transit Authority already provides.

Please join me and thousands of your neighbors by voting yes for buses, yes for Spokane Transit Authority Proposition 1.

John Alder
