With Initiative 960 not looking good in the early results, failing 45.5 percent to 54.5 percent in King County, it looks now to be passing statewide. Sponsor Tim Eyman was out with an early thank-you-and-onward statement, reprinted below. It's a good who's who of the Eyman tax-buster movement, which may be rebounding with this seeming victory. Here's Tim: Taxpayers all over Washington are counting on us to keep fighting for them -- we won't let them down. As for what we've got planned for 2008, stay tuned. We ask everyone to join us in thanking our thousands of supporters throughout the state who collected the voter signatures and donated the dollars necessary to qualify I-960 for the ballot. Taxpayers appreciate your efforts and so do we. Super supporter Mike Dunmire really stepped up the plate to help with Initiative 960 -- his leadership helped inspire thousands of our supporters to get 960 on the ballot this year. Special thanks to state senators Don Benton and Pam Roach, state representatives Ed Orcutt and Cary Condotta, the folks at the Washington Policy Center and Evergreen Freedom Foundation, and our attorneys Dick Stephens and Jim Rigby for helping us draft Initiative 960. We'd also like to thank talk show professionals Dan Sytman and David Boze at KTTH, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, and Brian Suits at KVI, Dori Monson and Frank Shiers on KIRO, Mike Bastinelli at KIT, and Dennis Shannon at KONA, and Mike Fitzsimmons at KXLY for their advocacy of I-960. Thanks also to columnists Adele Ferguson, Elizabeth Hovde, John Carlson, and Pam Dzama and the Seattle Times, Everett Herald, Centralia Chronicle, and Yakima Business Times for endorsing and supporting 960's policies. I'd also like to personally thank the editorial board members, TV, radio, and newspaper reporters who seemed to try really hard to report on I-960 accurately.
