Voters prefer transportation spending over subsidized stadiums

I’m not at all surprised that a poll conducted from June 1-5 found that voters would rather pay for transportation than rebuild the recently remodeled Seattle Center Key Arena.  For some time voters in Seattle have supported transit and other transportation improvements in numerous votes.   

Not surprisingly, voters are overwhelmed by the myriad of projects needing attention in our inadequate, under funded transportation system in Seattle, and the surrounding region. 

The voting public would like leadership from our elected officials, when it comes to prioritizing transportation and deciding where to put the funding.  Clearly the majority of voters in Seattle are less concerned about cost, and more interested in how the funding will improve mobility, reduce congestion and improve transit service.
