Sunday, editorial columnist Brier Dudley wrote how Transportation Choices Coalition has evolved from a small community group advocating for bike, pedestrian and transit options into a political powerhouse with little transparency that coordinates ballot measures and raises billions for public transportation megaprojects. The group received more than $1 million in funding from public agencies that benefit from its work increasing transit spending via ballot measures such as Sound Transit 3. Monday, his column suggested some changes to improve transparency and strengthen Washington’s public disclosure law and provide more clarity for advocacy nonprofits.
