Sent your ballot in yet? Emergency-radio levy election Tuesday

In case you forgot about your ballot after it arrived a few weeks ago, now’s the time to vote on its lone measure: The levy to raise money to replace the area’s aged emergency-radio system. It’s a nine-year levy starting with 7 cents for every thousand dollars of property valuation. You can mail your ballot by Tuesday night as long as you use a stamp; if you want to turn it in for free, ballot drop-off vans will be at West Seattle Stadium and White Center’s Greenbridge Library, 10 am-5 pm tomorrow and Monday, 10 am-8 pm on Tuesday.

    Voted no. Costs didn’t make sense.

    No question we need a new system. But I would like to see a project plan. When will it start and finish? Who is the contractor. What is the transition plan? What technology will be used. What does the FCC have to say? How much are the co-users of the system kicking in and have there voters approved it? There are a lot of open issues and questions that have not been presented to the voters.

    Voted yes. Public safety and reporting/communicating crimes in THIS community of ALL communities is long overdue.

    No ifs, ands or buts from the peanut gallery will change the grave need.

    If numbers or math on any levy don’t make sense to you, ask questions or don’t vote at all. Voting no because you do not understand is wrong and abuses the right to vote.

    There is opposition to this by people who suck at math. Ignore them.
