Woodinville Chamber leads in supporting transportation solutions

The Woodinville Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has passed a resolution to support Referendum 51, making the Chamber a leader in finding solutions for safer roads and traffic relief. "Our transportation problem has reached crisis proportions," states Executive Director Dan Ramirez, "if we refuse to address this problem the reader board message will not be 'Will the last person leaving Seattle please turn off the light,' but "Gridlock: going out of business.'"
   The revenues of R-51 will go to fund safety improvement projects, public transit improvement projects, and traffic relief and freight mobility projects, and cost the average driver less than $4 a month. Referendum 51 will be on the November 5, 2002 ballot.ΚΚΚ
   The Woodinville Chamber represents, promotes and strengthens a successful business community and encourages cooperative relationships with other Chambers of Commerce, government agencies and community organizations. We urge your support and ask for you to join us to pass this referendum.
