Referendum 88 would impose racial quotas; vote no

I am a minority Hispanic, and have lived in the south Everett area for over 30 years, I have never seen anything like this: different rules for different races?

If your believe in real fairness your answer should be NO, then your only choice when you receive your ballot is to vote reject on Referendum 88-Initiative 1000.

Current state law requires that everyone is treated equally. Referendum 88-Initiative 1000 would change that to impose racial quotas in public hiring, admissions to colleges &and universities and in deciding if a business wins a government contract.

Under Referendum 88-Initiative 1000 your race will matter in every aspect of your life.

I don’t want my neighbors to be punished because they welcomed Hispanics and other races into their communities.

Please vote to reject Referendum 88-Initiative 1000.
