Post-Proposition 1: The Future of Transportation in Seattle

Friends of Seattle Invitation

Thursday, March 20, 2008
Spitfire (2219 4th Avenue, between Bell and Blanchard)
$10 suggested donation includes a drink

Proposition 1, on the November 2007 ballot, posed a challenging and divisive question for progressive groups throughout the city, including Friends of Seattle. After the failure of Prop. 1, we're all asking: what's next?

Join our panel of speakers:
Members from both sides of the Prop. 1 debate, including...
*Seattle City Councilmember Jan Drago, Chair of the Transportation Committee
*Mike O'Brien from the Sierra Club
*Greg Walker, Sound Transit's Policy and Planning Officer
*Moderated by the Seattle Channel's C.R. Douglas

Our elected officials and nonprofit leaders have been working hard to answer that question, and they will join us on March 20 to share their victories from the 2008 legislative session, explain what they're working on and how you can help, answer your questions and address your concerns on transportation in our region.

Please join Friends of Seattle for our first event of 2008! In addition to getting up to speed with one of the hottest issues in the city, this is your chance to become a Friends of Seattle member and mingle with like-minded folks.

Visit www.friendsofseattle.org to learn more and then join us to celebrate the future of Seattle.

To RSVP, please email events@friendsofseattle.org.
