REASONABLE POLICE PURSUIT INITIATIVE. To guarantee that it qualifies for the Nov 2024 ballot, Jim needed to turn in 405K sigs. His team turned in a whopping 410,518. Another victory for the people. Thank you, Jim Walsh!

(cc’d to the media, house & senate members, and Governor, and other candidates for office)

Today, Jim Walsh and his team turned in 26 boxes of petitions for the REASONABLE POLICE PURSUIT INITIATIVE.

He needed to hit 325K valid signatures.

Secretary of State recommends 405K.

He and his team turned in a whopping 410,518.

That GUARANTEES that another one of his common sense initiatives and will appear on the all-important Nov 2024 ballot.

At a media event before the turn-in of petitions, a mother of a young girl killed by a car thief passionately spoke about the need to end the Democrats’ failed experiment. From the campaign:

Today, Washington voters took action to help end the crime wave that has swept lives, livelihoods and futures away from families and business owners. 410,518 Washingtonians signed Initiative 2113 to restore local police oversight and begin restoring public safety.

“Police were only able to watch as the man who would strike my daughter in a stolen truck sped away,” said Amber Goldade, whose 12 year old daughter was killed by a man driving a stolen truck. “They could have stopped him long before he got behind the wheel that day if our laws hadn’t handcuffed the police response to his crimes. I’m fighting to stop this happening to more families.”

State lawmakers enacted policy changes to limit the conditions in which police can respond to crimes in progress in 2021. Legislators softened some of the police response restrictions in 2023, but refused to restore the local control over police response that mayors, law enforcement, business owners and voters have been calling for.

Sen. Manka Dhingra, supporter of the original police restrictions, recently claimed, “We don’t have any data indicating that there is rising crime because of this policy.”

Since the year the police restrictions passed, car theft in Seattle has skyrocketed more than 42 percent according to Seattle Police Crime Dashboard data. For the second year in a row, car theft in the city has reached an all-time high, with two more months remaining in the calendar year.

“Communities across the state are suffering impacts of rising crime while lawmakers tell them not to believe their eyes,” said Brian Heywood, founder of Let’s Go Washington. “Local police, mayors and city councils should not be stuck with a one-size-fits-all policy that keeps police from doing their job. Handcuffing police is a failure and regular Washingtonians are paying the price.”
