Mayor McGinn says he's ready to veto tunnel projectFebruary 2, 2011 @ 5:42 am (Updated: 1:30 pm - 3/28/11 )
You may have the chance to vote on the Alaskan Way tunnel later this year.
An initiative to force a vote on the tunnel was filed Tuesday, but Mayor Mike McGinn says he's ready to veto the project, and fight the City Council.
"I presume they have a chance to change their mind or reconsider what they're doing. I'd urge them to do so," says McGinn.
But it may be an uphill battle for McGinn. The council has enough votes to override his veto.
