Work something out with the communities but not with taxes. Do s

I will start out by saying...Don't cut the future short. It's here now!!! We can see it!! in those little toddlers...We were there once, our children were there once. Now for me it would have to be great- grandchildren but the way the world is, show some care and happiness in the little ones. It may be the only time in their lives for some of them that they wikll know sheer happiness. Going to the park, being with ...more »

General Fund Distribution

Parks always seem to get the backend of the "General Fund"..... what is with that prehistoric issue? Green paint for bicycle lanes? Wow talk about bad use of public funds. In good times that might work, but not right now. Also - since we lose so much money on-going to the light rail, etc., don't add insult to injury with this bicycle mess. Really - Mayor that is NOT the reason you were elected...NOR the City Council... ...more »

License tax for bicycles in the city.

STOP painting the green street intersections - for bicycles. Please don't remind me that we voted for this in 2006..... remember how we voted NOT to build a stadium or two? Well things change - we know that, so why don't we try to "tax" those bicyclists - say with a "license tax" . . . If each one of them had to pay a small licensing tax, how could that hurt any of them really?

Parking Costs Too High Already....

Lay off the consideration to up-charge even MORE for our currently over-priced parking. Retail business is having a tough enough go of it....shall we not try to drive the retail shoppers to the Eastside. Once they put that toll on 520 - Seattle will have issues enough..... are we trying to go back to "Will the last one leaving Seattle, please......" Mayor - we all DON'T have bicycles....

Don't support Langston Hughes Arts Center over valuable programs

Do not transfer money from the Office of Arts and Culture to Parks and Recreation. Money that is spent through the OAC is economic development- providing jobs, creating events- all of which maintains jobs, stimulates revenue, spending, tourism and taxes. Langston Hughes is mostly an inactive organization that does not make the same impact (audience numbers and quality of life impact) that the hundreds of organizations ...more »

Stop bike Projects

Remove the $13 Million set aside by McGinn for bike lanes from the budget. When we have excess money we can think about increasing transit lanes for less than 1% of the commuting population. Until then stop ALL the bike projects!!
