Some highlights (watch part 2 of the interview for yourself here, and part 1 here):
On whether there will be cost overruns on the tunnel: "I have no idea, and it's not my problem right now. The state is going to manage the project. I know that they've taken a very cautious approach to their cost estimates because they don't want to have any overruns. There's a lot of contingency built into it. But you know what they say in politics: never say never."
On the proposed $60 car-tab fee, which would pay for road maintenance, transit improvements, and bike and pedestrian projects: "Sixty dollars is a lot of money for folks, especially in a tough economic time, and I haven't, honestly, looked at what it is being proposed to be spent on. Many of my friends groups like Transportation Choices Coalition, say that it's a good package. I look forward, as a voter, to learning more about it and making a decision."
On losing the election in the primary: "It was interesting. If you've ever watched a train wreck, it felt a lot like that, because you could see it coming. I'm a good politician. I'm a good vote counter. I knew how people were responding. And it really, in my book, went back to the economy collapsing in 2008. They were in a viscerally angry mood. So I would sit down and talk to people like we're sitting now. I'd talk to them about what we'd done---how we'd reduced the crime rate, how we'd taken leadership internationally on climate protection, how we'd built light rail---and they weren't hearing me."
