Local news story of the week: Let’s Move Forward, the campaign asking Seattle voters to approve the deep-bore tunnel by way of a referendum on the August 16 primary ballot, today reported to the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission that it has now raised over $312,000. The key revelation in the SEEC report: Two of the top three donors include the same companies who have been awarded a $1.09 billion contract from the state to build the tunnel: Dragados USA and Tutor Perini Corp, both of which each gave $25,000 to LMF.
