Herrera Beutler Essentially Seems to Maybe Take a Stand

by lewwaters

It sure seems like she is essentially in favor of maybe opposing the project if perhaps voters and taxpayers once again get the chance to make their voices known if by chance a vote on funding is ever held again.

She has sent a “strongly worded” letter suggesting a district-wide vote, but declined to take a position on the major sore point of the project, extending light rail from Portland, Oregon.

She said on whether or not she supports light rail, “That’s an interesting question. I don’t want to get out in front and impose my feelings on the public. I’m not going to say, ‘I know better than you all what is needed here’.”

You just have to wonder, if she is like this in a friendly environment like Lars Larson, how would she fall apart in a hostile interview?
