I’ve been sitting by my computer all day, waiting for Dino Rossi to state his position on Initiative 912. He doesn’t call, he doesn’t write… I’m beginning to take it personally. But my bruised feelers are nothing compared to the hearts he’ll break in the business community should he sit silently by and permit the anti-roads initiative to pass in his name.
As we all now know, the polling data puts the fate of I-912 — and the transportation package it would repeal — squarely in Rossi’s hands. If he publicly states his opposition, the initiative loses. If he remains silent, it will likely win.
If Rossi wants to lead this state, now is a good time to start. He owes it to voters, and to the business interests who finance his campaigns, to take a stance on the most important issue on the November ballot… an initiative that is as much about him as it is about taxes or roads.
And so I will patiently sit here and await his answer… “Where’s Rossi?”
