Whoever is elected Governor of Washington state this November faces a huge number of daunting issues, without even dealing with transportation. Throw the issues of transportation funding and policy in on top of that though, and someone is going to have their hands full.
And while we’ve heard a lot about education, jobs, and health care issues from the two main candidates, Jay Inslee (D) and Rob McKenna (R), the two haven’t said much about how we get around in this state.
Wanting to give the topic of transportation equal time, Transportation Issues Daily presented the candidates with 12 transportation questions. Read their answers by clicking the link. I find it interesting that the answers to several of the questions relate back to freight mobility, which we didn’t put much emphasis on in the way of transportation until the past couple years.
