As Secretary of State Certifies Let’s Go Washington Signatures, Washington Moms Are United: We Won’t Go Backward
“Washington moms, families, businesses, and voters will not accept the harmful measures that one billionaire behind Let’s Go Washington is trying to advance. These deeply unpopular, potentially devastating initiatives would repeal the capital gains tax that funds the state’s struggling early learning and child care system, could end our state’s paid family and medical leave program, and much more. These measures are bad individually and catastrophic collectively.
“MomsRising and our many, many allies will work tirelessly to defeat these destructive, regressive measures that would take our state backward. To be clear: We are here because of the selfish actions of one billionaire, Brian Heywood, who spent $6 million to put an unprecedented slate of initiatives on the 2024 ballot. We will work with lawmakers and organize voters to ensure that wealthy special interests do not undo years of progress in making Washington healthier, more family friendly, economically successful, and fair. This is a fight we will not lose.”
