Measure materializes to repeal Issaquah plastic bag ban
June 12, 2012
By Warren Kagarise
Opponents of legislation to ban plastic bags at Issaquah retailers plan to challenge the ordinance on the November ballot.
Craig Keller, a Seattle resident behind the unsuccessful effort to repeal the Seattle plastic bag ban, started organizing opponents to the Issaquah legislation after the June 4 decision to outlaw plastic bags.
Opponents need to gather 2,548 signatures.
Keller plans to enlist volunteers to collect signatures, including merchants opposed to the ban.
The campaign, called Save Our Choice, is in the process of retooling www.saveourchoice.us from the Seattle measure for the Issaquah measure. In addition to the website, voters can call the campaign at 206-932-2243 to learn more.
