A candidate running to head a multibillion-dollar monorail project in Seattle is taking heat for comments about Jews. Cindi Laws, who is running for re-election as head of the Seattle Monorail Project, said Aug. 9 that her opponent Beth Goldberg — who opposes the monorail — would enjoy an edge because the city’s Jewish community is largely against the transportation project and therefore would be likely to support Goldberg, media reports said.
