Local mayors and others pushing for a “YES” vote in the transit funding plebiscite spent just over 5.8 million dollars on their “public outreach and education” campaign.
Voting ended in late May.
Results are due back in a few weeks.
A “yes” vote means we’ll pay an additional point-five percent tax to fund a wide array of transit upgrades and expansion.
A “no” vote means we’ll more or less remain status quo for the foreseeable future.
Critics pushing for a no vote says TransLink’s been lousy at managing our money and doesn’t deserve any more of it.
