SAYING “NO” TO FREEWAY TOLLS
Tolling is a regressive tax on the working poor that subsidizes the rich. It will cost the average driver $240/mo per vehicle while making it free for those who can afford expensive electric vehicles.
My opponent voted to move tolling forward in Clackamas County.
“You are absolutely right, it creates the legal framework for moving forward with tolling.”
– Sonya Fischer, Emergency Board Meeting 5/10/22
Ben created and is fighting for the ‘Clackamas County Anti-Tolling Action Plan’ and, with your help, will work to put a full stop to tolling in Clackamas County.
What we know
• $240 per month/ per vehicle
• Taxes the poor to pay for the rich
• FREE tolls for the rich who can afford expensive electric vehicles
• Serious violation of privacy rights due to tracking when and where you drive
• No additional roads are planned to be built with the money collected
• Supporters admit their plan is to force a change to mass transit by adding massive costs to driving
• Neighborhood side-streets will see a major increase in congestion as drivers avoid the tolls
How we stop it!
