The supporters of Pierce Transit Proposition 1 stated that if it didn’t pass, service would be reduced by 53 percent by February 2014. Now Pierce Transit states that service reductions would be 34 percent if the reductions were put in place by September 2013 or 36 percent if they waited until February 2014 (thenewstribune.com).

How does Pierce Transit account for this significant difference? Is it surprising that the voters are suspicious when proposals are presented to them for their approval? Any issues that are presented to the voters need to be thoroughly vetted before they are placed on the ballot.
