Vote ‘yes’ on I-732 | Letter

  • Jun 24, 2016 at 11:30AM

I'm writing this letter to inform Redmond residents about I-732, an initiative that's on the November ballot. I-732 is a carbon tax initiative that will reduce carbon pollution and help protect our planet for future generations. It's revenue-neutral so all the money gathered from the tax is given back to families and businesses through a tax rebate and a lowered sales tax. It will also effectively eliminate the business and occupation tax. Businesses and families alike will benefit from this initiative. I think this is an important issue that should be on everyone's mind this upcoming election. I encourage you all to vote "yes" in November!

Puget Sound Energy is spinning ideology | Letter

  • Jun 22, 2016 at 10:30AM

Puget Sound Energy (PSE) needs to get back to managing public electricity without speculative design. Playing entrepreneur for foreign investors, multinationals and profit motives is violence to our fragile Eastside mentality and our development.

I have been a citizen of Washington state for 28 years and a Sammamish resident for seven years. I have met Ramiro Valderrama and listened to what others in our community have said about him. I found him to be a very credible and a refreshing voice of reason.
