Sierra Clubber walks the talk

Getting all the way from Seattle to The News Tribune by bus – and foot – isn’t easy. But Sierra Club member Tim Gould wanted to practice what he preaches when he came down last week for The News Tribune’s public forum on the Roads & Transit ballot measure.


In a follow-up email, he described the rather monumental effort it took:


Thanks for posting the story of a lighter moment from Wednesday’s News Tribune forum. For the record (in case anyone asks), my travel itinerary consisted of:


Sound Transit express #586 from Seattle’s University District to Pacific Ave.

& S. 19th St. in downtown Tacoma. Walked west through UW Tacoma campus to reach S. 19th & Market. A glance at my watch indicated I’d probably missed the local connection, so I continued up the hill on S. 19th. But– my lucky day!– the bus was running late, so I was able to hop… Pierce Transit #57 westbound on S. 19th St. to stop nearest News Tribune building. Walked the long block to your building.


Glad the News Tribune sponsored the event. Hope everyone went home with more answers than when they arrived (maybe more questions, too!).

cheers,


Tim Gould
