Competing CRC Ads – Who Really Has the Majority?

by lewwaters

CRC proponents recently released an ad and Jim Moeller made sure to circulate it throughout the legislature in an effort to convince elected officials in Olympia they were in the majority.

Couv.com has released a more truthful ad featuring numerous citizens expressing why the CRC is a bad deal for Clark County.

Proponents ad may be seen at the Couv.com link above. Take note, those speaking in the pro-ad are all speaking from the exact same script with the editing cut to switch back and forth to say their pre-written message.

Couv.com did not have a written script, we each spoke freely of our views.

  1. Competition wasn’t just in the two ads shared by this blog and couv.com. If tonight’s C-tran special advisory meeting was any indications, the groupies following the Union Lady in the proponent’s video were out in force. What a surprise.

    Many good questions asked tonight…leaving some of the Board scratching their heads…others ready to render a decision.

    Funny…in order to get Loo Rail into Vancouver, the CRC promoters had to “streamline” the construction project in order to attempt acquisition of the federal grant which would pay for (phase 1) loo rail yet C-Tran cannot change the current LPA unilaterally. Hmm…it’s okay for TriMet but not okay for C-Tran???

    It concerns me that the folks promoting the CRC (TriMet especially) states “There’s no expectations that C-Tran will pay for TriMet’s Liabilities.” No definitive answer…just that there’s NO EXPECTATIONS. Now isn’t that a secure response!!! Doesn’t it make you all feel so cozy about this project???

    What truly pissed me off was the comment by Nancy Boyd when she said in so many words “The project was streamlined in order to get light rail into Vancouver (2 hours 52 minutes into it), then again…stated in so many words…”…just enough to get light rail into Vancouver.” (2 hours, 56 minutes).

    If there’s still anybody out there in Clark or Multnomah Counties who believe this is supposed to improve freight mobility and commuter mobility…I’ve got a bridge in the high desert I’d love to sell ya!!!

  2. As we have said since day one, it is a light rail project, always has been.

    The bridge was only the carrot to force us to agree.
