As we expected, the complaint Gene Hoglund filed with the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission against Cascade Bicycle Club was dismissed today. During the time that Mr. Hoglund’s complaint has been active, we’ve watched and read inaccuracies about and allegations made against our organization and our mission. It’s difficult to sit on the sidelines when our reputation is being damaged.
By filing frivolous complaints like this, our opposition shows they are grasping at straws because their position has so little substance. This is a distraction technique.
You see, there is a struggle going on. A struggle for the vision of what will make our city and region great. You know you can count on Cascade to stand strong for a better future. On the Missing Link. On Transportation 2040. On the tunnel. In the legislature. In our classes. In our communities.
And right here on our city streets.
This is what Proposition 1 is about. The future. For some reason, our opposition is satisfied with a future that maintains the status quo where our buses are slow and unreliable, where it’s not always safe to cross the street or for our kids to walk or bike to school, and where our roads our littered with potholes.
We see a different future, a vision we believe you share. You and I are making incremental changes that will add up to a sustainable future. And people want to stop us from making that progress toward that vision.
Stand strong with us. Don’t let these bullies knock you down. The next incremental change we need to make is to approve Proposition 1 in the next election. So please, get up to speed, volunteer to help, support the campaign, tell your friends and let’s make progress happen.
Let’s get this done!
