Everyone makes mistakes. But some people might be making a mistake when they vote because they have been given misleading information.

Renton For KCLS Now, with the help of City Councilman King Parker, have put together a very convincing flyer that tells Renton voters all of the great reasons they should be voting “yes” on the annexation to KCLS. While we have already shown you all of the inconsistencies in this flyer we fear that our message may have reached some of you a little late.

Joining KCLS will cost Renton taxpayers millions of additional taxes that are just not necessary to get our library funding up to the level that it needs to be. In fact the tax burden that will be put on Renton taxpayers is so great the Renton For KCLS Now flyer does not even mention how much of a tax increase residents will see in their property tax statement. Now, if joining KCLS is so great and cost-effective wouldn’t that information be all over the flyer? Well, it’s not and that is because this flyer is misleading and it is having an effect on the way that people are voting.

If you feel that you have made an error in voting “yes” for library annexation you still have a chance to fix it. You can pick up a replacement ballot at the King County election office. Make sure that your vote gets counted – make sure that it is the vote that you wanted counted. There is still time to change your vote, visit the King County Election website to find out where you can get a replacement ballot and thank you for making the extra effort to keep the Renton Public Library Local.
