Proposal to build a monorail from Ballard to West Seattle on Nov. ballot

SEATTLE -- Get ready for yet another vote on the Monorail.

A new initiative  qualified for the fall ballot, marking the fifth Seattle city vote on a Monorail proposal in recent years.

The last effort imploded nearly a decade ago after blasting through its budget, costing taxpayers over $100 million, with nothing to show for it.

But that experience doesn`t phase the leader of this new effort to build a line from Ballard to West Seattle.

The Monorail initiative will be on the November ballot for Seattle voters.

Q13 FOX News political analyst C.R. Douglas gives the details.

    Let’s not act like monorail spporters are cult. Cannot get anymore cultish than the transit, streetcar, and light rail/subway supporters. Go check out the Seattle Transit Blog – populated with transit obsessed boys; check out Seattle Subway and its ravings ad nauseum about “subways”!! Frankly they make monorail supporters look pretty conservative in comparison.
