On April 23 the Renton City Council adopted a resolution to place the downtown library location on the August 7, 2012 ballot.

Nearly two-dozen supporters of the Cedar River Library attended a campaign kickoff event at last week.

Over the weekend the group registered with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) and on Monday they opened a bank account for campaign contributions with .

“We’re going to run this group on facts and we’re going to state the obvious,” said Stuary Avery, who filed with the PDC on behalf of the group. “There will be no negative campaigning.”

Avery is Chair of the group, Beth Asher is Vice Chair and Nicola Robinson is Treasurer.

The group discussed signage, mailers, doorbelling and other ways to get their message out to voters before the August special election. The measure will appear on the ballot as Proposition One.

Campaign signs will likely start popping up in the next two or three weeks. 

The group will tentatively meet bi-weekly for the next six weeks, then every week leading up to the election. The next meeting is scheduled for May 17, 6:30 p.m. at Luther's Table.

Three Renton City Council members also attended the meeting: Randy Corman, Marcie Palmer and Greg Taylor.

The only winners in this campaign are the blood sucking lawyers. Its a BUILDING.. Not a temple.. Surely money would be better spent getting school supplies or food/shelter for disadvantaged kids rather than paying for some leechy attorneys new boat?
