Buses keep area moving

The April 6 page one Spokesman-Review article provides many positive reasons to vote for Spokane Transit Authority Proposition 1. Spokane, as the balanced story indicates, has a lot riding on passage of Proposition 1.

As a former county elections employee, I would add that citizens in the STA benefit area have another solid reason to enact Proposition 1. As much as school levies, law enforcement funding and public library issues, passage of Proposition 1 puts the power of positive citizen votes to work for everyone.

When a bus, school or STA, goes by your house, that’s your bus taking someone you know or care about to better business, health and education. The elections department provided us with bus passes to get us to work without worrying about parking, traffic or weather. Vote yes for Proposition 1; it will be a great ride.
