Friday/ who and what to vote for

Our local Seattle elections are coming up again and I got my ballot, so I have to study up on the candidates and initiatives. (Washington State is one of 24 in the USA that allow voter initiatives – so the citizens can gather signatures and put initiatives on the ballot).

Some of this years initiatives : an initiative proposing that the State of Washington crack down harder on people trading dead animal parts (including those of a pangolin), one proposing higher property taxes for early childhood education for underprivileged kids, another proposing for $12 a month in property taxes for maintaining and improving Seattle’s transport infrastructure, and a Charter Amendment for increased oversight into police actions.
