Battleground Washington: Redmond Officials Refuse to Turn in Petitions, Residents Shocked
Officials in Redmond, Washington are determined to have their state live up to its recent designation as a “battleground state” in the fight against red light cameras.
The city is refusing to send petitions on to King county officials despite a state law requiring them to do so. According to the mayor:
We’ve been advised by our attorney that the subject of this petition is not subject to initiative. Therefore, there’s no state law compelling us to do anything with the signatures.
