Ivy League Defeat

On Tuesday, residents of Mercer Island (off the coast of Washington state) resoundingly defeated the "Ivy Initiative," a proposal that would have increased property taxes to fund a $12.5 million project to remove invasive plants from the island city. According to this article in The Seattle Times, backers of the proposal are keeping a positive outlook, hoping that they raised public awareness about invasive species. You can read about the history of the proposal in previous ISW posts.
