VIDEO: Clash over $30 car tabs at Seattle City Council

October 10, 2019


AND STOLE THREE CELL PHONES, ACCORDING TO POLICE THEY WENT OUTSIDE AND THEN STOLE AN EMPLOYEE’S CAR FROM THE PARKING LOT. IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING, CALL POLICE. A CLASH OVER $30 CAR TABS AT THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL, THEY CAME OUT AGAINST INITIATIVE 976, BUT NOT BEFORE GETTING BLASTED BY THE SPONSOR. LIVE IN SEATTLE WITH WHY THE COUNCIL TOOK A STAND ON THIS HOT POLITICAL ISSUE. Reporter: WE ARE AT FIFTH AND JAMES, ACROSS FROM CITY HALL, YOU’RE LOOKING AT ONE OF THE FINAL BUSES OF THE EVENING COMMUTE, AS PEOPLE GET ONTO FINALLY HAD HOME AFTER A LONG DAY AT WORK, IF I 976 PASSES, THEY FEEL THEY WILL LOSE SO MUCH FOR WHAT THE CITY COUNCIL HAS WORKED FOR, EXPANDED BUSES, LIGHT RAIL, THEY ARE TRYING TO WARN VOTERS ABOUT IT. BUS SERVICE IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS URGING THE PUBLIC TO VOTE AGAINST INITIATIVE 976. AS A DISABLED PERSON, BUSES ARE IMPORTANT, I NEED THEM TO GO AROUND. Reporter: DRESSING THE — DROPPING THE PRICE TO $30, AND IT WOULD REQUIRE SOUND TRANSIT TO USE THE KELLY BLUE BOOK VALUE, INSTEAD OF THE HIGHER VALUES INCLUDED IN THE TRANSIT LAWS. IT WOULD ELIMINATE THE ADDITIONAL $80 CAR TAB FEE THAT THEY PAY FOR BUS SERVICE. THAT IS WHY OPPONENTS SAY I 976 WOULD CUT 50% OF THE BUS TRANSIT HOURS PAID BY THE BENEFIT DISTRICT. SEATTLE COULD LOSE UP TO 175,000 HOURS OF BUS SERVICE IN 2020. Reporter: GOVERNMENTS WILL LOSE $4 BILLION FOR ROADS AND TRANSIT ACCORDING TO A STATE ESTIMATE. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME HE HAS BROUGHT A $30 BALLOT, HE BLASTED THE CITY COUNCIL FOR CONSIDERING A RESOLUTION AGAINST 976. VOTERS DON’T LIKE POLITICIANS TELLING THEM HOW THEY SHOULD VOTE. Reporter: THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S SUING HIM FOR ALLEGED DECEPTIVE CAMPAIGN-FINANCE COMMERCIALS, THEY ARE SURE TO MENTION HIS NAME. 160 BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES RATED IN POOR CONDITION, THAT’S WHY I OPPOSE INITIATIVE 976. PLEASE VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE 976. WHY SHOULD VOTERS TRUST YOU? WEAKER VOTERS SHOULD TRUST THEMSELVES, THEY SHOULD SEE THE BILLS THAT THEY ARE GETTING ARE DISHONEST. Reporter: ANOTHER ONE OF THE SOUND TRANSIT BUSES TAKING PASSENGERS HOME, HE IS COUNTING ON PEOPLE BEING UPSET ABOUT THOSE CAR TAB VALUATIONS, SO UPSET THAT THEY WILL VOTE FOR THIS, AND PEOPLE AT THE CITY COUNCIL ARE COUNTING ON

    I'm just sayin… It shouldn't be almost 400 for tags and it shouldn't be a issue getting tags for unregistered cars that people get I gotten hella cars i simply just couldn't get tags for because either the person that owned the car was dead the car had a lien or the tags were simply too expensive things gotta change for Seattle some way… I'm sure they can figure out something else with transit authorities… The price of living period is just out of pocket
