Before Voting Check Out Washington Conservation Voters Nov 2007 Endorsements

Global Warming? Energy Conservation? Transit? Toxic Chemicals? Recycling? Which candidates running for election on the November 2007 ballot in Washington State are most likely to represent you in protecting your health and the environment? Check out the list of locally endorsed candidates running for mayor, city councils, county councils, port commissions and more at the Washington Conservation Voters website.

Local endorsements are given for Clark, King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston and Whatcom Counties.

They also recommned a No vote on Eyman’s Initiative 960. Initiative 960 is a Trojan Horse initiative meant to give minority Republicans control over the Washington State Legislature. It would allow one third of Washington State Legislators in either the House or Senate to stop any revenue increase no matter how needed the increase was. See our recent blog post, “Initiative 960 Would Turn Control of the Legislature Over to a Conservative Republican Minority

Initiative 960 is an attempt to overturn Washington State’s representative democracy based on majority rules for voting in the Washington State Constitution. I-960 would give veto power over the state budget to a minority of one third of the Legislators. You can visit the No on 960 website here.

Washington Conservation Voters also urge a Yes vote on Proposition 1 in King, Snohomish and Snohomish Counties. Proposition 1 is the Roads and Transit proposal.
