News As Promised: Footage from Our Prop 1 Debate
posted by October 18 at 16:22 PMon
Here’s the pro-Prop 1 camp and the anti-Prop 1 camp debating in front of our editorial board last Wednesday afternoon.
Prop 1 is the $17.8 billion roads and transit measure (50 miles of light rail and 152 miles of general purpose lanes).
We ended up coming out against the measure. Read our reasons here.
The debaters are:
Pro-Prop 1 (L-R)—campaign spokesman Sandeep Kaushik, Rob Johnson from Transportation Choices Coalition, and Bill LaBorde from Environment Washington.
Anti-Prop 1 (L-R) Mike O’Brien from the Sierra Club, David Hiller from the Cascade Bicycle Clube, and Mike McGinn from the Sierra Club.
Part 1, includes the following chapters:
“If we vote ‘Yes.’”
“I’m going to be completely disingenuous.”
“If we’re going to reduce it.”
“So, you guys say.”
“Politicians don’t get to say.”
“And in response to Sandeep’s Question.”
“What the Sierra Club has done.”
I’ll post Part 2 shortly.
