In an earlier post, we reported that John Ladenburg and other Sound Transit board members were surprised when Ron Sims, the King County executive and fellow board member, announced his opposition Thursday to the Roads & Transit measure.
Here’s an e-mail that Joni Earl, Sound Transit’s CEO, sent to Sims at 6 a.m. Thursday:
This e-mail is not about your position on the ballot. You gave me your word there would be no surprises. That has been our relationship for 7 years through thick and thin. I just read the Times. A column of this magnitude constitutes a surprise.
I guess there is nothing else to say. I just needed you to know at a personal level and with my staff, my reaction to the lack of the courtesy heads up I have always given you.
