Bill Gates Sr., one of the primary sponsors of Initiative 1098 – the state income tax on high-income residents – will speak at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.
The Protect Washington coalition says it expects more than 100 volunteers to listen to Gates Sr.’s speech, before fanning out across the neighborhood to talk about all the initiatives before next week’s election. The public is welcome to attend the speech.
By the way, Gates Sr. filmed one of the initiative’s TV ads – the one with the dunk tank – at the Phinney Neighborhood Center.
