Palumbo wrong about opponent’s transportation record

I was dismayed to read Guy Palumbo’s comments in The Herald about State Rep. Luis Moscoso who is the vice chair of the Transportation Committee. Let me set the record straight.

Working with other legislators, Rep. Moscoso helped provide the leadership necessary to pass the transportation package in 2015 – the first in 10 years. This package is essential to keeping our economy moving forward and will provide much needed road and transit projects to our region.

Rep. Moscoso worked hard or his district, and delivered:

He pushed for the I-405/132nd Interchange funding.

Working with Rep. Mike Sells and Rep. Lillian Ortiz-Self, he won more than $152 million in road improvements in Snohomish County.

And for King County, he passed the Roads Bill (HB 2590), that provides taxpayers with lower road maintenance costs and greater efficiencies by updating outdated laws.

Palumbo continues to assert that Rep. Moscoso “only delivered $10 million to his district.” That statement is wrong. Voters of the 1st District should reject Palumbo’s negative and erroneous assertions and join me in supporting Luis Moscoso for the state Senate.
