Supporting a Transportation Package for Washington State



Transportation is one of our top priorities. The North Spokane Corridor is the top-tier project, but other transportation improvements are just as important, like improvements to the Medical Lake and Geiger Road interchanges (needed to help in business recruitment on the West Plains), State Route 904 from Four Lakes to Cheney, improvements on Interstate 90 from Sullivan Road to the state line, and more.

We joined the Seattle Chamber of Commerce and other groups around the state to submit brief testimonials from our region on why the state legislature needs to pass a transportation budget. Here’s all the testimonials put together in one video:

Jay Allert, President of Aslin-Finch Company and Chair of our AgriBusiness Council, was one of two Spokane representatives featured in the video. Scott Morris, CEO of Avista, was the other.

Tell your state legislators to pass a transportation package by sending them this video or emailing them. The Seattle Chamber has a nice pre-written letter to make it easy. If you’d like to write you own letter, look up your elected officials on our policy website.

Thanks to the folks at the Seattle Chamber of Commerce for producing the video and distributing it.
