Rich Erwin: City Council #6, Mercer Island

Rich Erwin brings a strong understanding of land use and environmental issues to his candidacy. He currently chairs the Mercer Island Design Commission which reviews all development projects proposed on the Island. He also supports a ban on plastic bags and Styrofoam containers, and improving the water quality of Lake Washington.  He opposes tolling on the I-90 Bridge, believing transportation infrastructure financing should be handled by the Puget Sound Regional Council, which includes representatives from the cities and the four counties directly impacted by I-90 access. He believes that a regionally funded solution is more equitable and spreads the burden of taxation more fairly. http://voteforrich.org/
