Money for Nothing

The new mayor of Seattle wants to add 241,000,000$ in new taxes to replace the sea wall on Seattle’s Water Front.

July 11th 062 

Sounds like a good ideal, we need the sea wall to protect the buildings and Lives of the people who live and work in the area. The problem is that a new sea wall is already paid for and will be built when the Alaska Way Viaduct is replaced with a new deep bore tunnel. On the 5 o’clock news they even used the same earthquake animation video they made to sell us the tunnel.

It this a stop gap? (6 years if we wait for the tunnel verses 4 years with the new tax.) I don’t think so…
