Primaries Candidate Ratings by Stop405tolls.org

We have finalized our candidate ratings for the primary election.  They are published below.  Some important points to these ratings:
Ratings listed are based on 3 factors:1.  How they answered the questionnaire
2.  If in office, did they sponsor/co-sponsor the bills we had presented in the last legislative session
3.  Did they or will they actively work to support Express Toll Lanes.

The rating scale is as follows:
A+ = Sponsored/co-sponsored HB2312 or SB6152 and answered all questions positively
A = Answered all questions positively, did not hold an office
B = Did not sponsor the bills while in office, but answered all questions positively
C = Answered some of the questions for supporting eliminating tolls positively
D = Mostly answered the questions against eliminating the tolls
F = Actively supported or would support keeping and expanding Express Toll Lanes

All of the candidates who responded to our survey received a rating.  Candidates who are not listed did not yet respond, so with one exception, we do not know where they stand on the issue.  If you are a candidate and you want to be included, please complete the survey from the link you received in an email.  Check your spam folder if you didn’t see an invitation.  You can request another invitation via email at stop405tolls@ outlook.com

Many candidates are not located in the region of the express toll lanes and are simply not aware of the issues or facts regarding the tolls to have an opinion yet.  For that reason we are holding a technical information session with transportation experts on July 21 at the Bellevue library from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm and will be recording the session and posting it on the web for everyone’s review.  While this is intended primarily to inform legislators and candidates, it is open to all.  There will be ample time to ask questions.  For those who cannot attend in person, please respond to the email invitation you received with your questions.  We will also be available by phone if you request it.  Our goal is for everyone to be informed about the issues of the tolls and the facts that WSDOT isn’t sharing.

THESE RATINGS ARE VALID FOR THE PRIMARIES ONLY.  We will republish ratings after the primaries for the general election.  For the general election, all candidates will receive a rating, not just those who respond to the survey.  This rating is for informational purposes to help voters know where candidates stand regarding the Express Toll Lanes.  If you want to know details of where your candidates stand or want to express how important this issue is to you, we encourage you to contact them directly.
