Dear Next Generation, I am hopeful that voters today will pass Sound Transit 3. By the time you are a teenager, the measure will have connected Tacoma to Seattle, and points in between with frequent light rail train service that you can ride whenever you want.  You will also be able to get to Everett, Bellevue, and Issaquah all via light rail, should you choose.

Instead, you’ll see much of our region from the sky as you travel on LINK light rail all the way to SeaTac, Downtown Seattle, and Ballard. The entire region, with all it has to offer, will be at your disposal.
