I do not have anything against these fine candidates, including Stan Lippmann ( . . . limit the size of a Congressional District to 50,000). Good luck with that, Mr. Lippman.
I just could not vote for all of them, or even most of them.
Larry Phillips - no, has been living the problem, has been endorsed by some of the problem.
Fred Jarrett - yes, has had to live with the county problems as a State Senator, he knows what he is getting into and is still willing to do it.
Stan Lippmann - no
Alan Lobdell - no
Susan Hutchison - no, raising money for a non-profit by taxing patrons more is not the experience I am looking for right now.
Dow Constantine - no, has been living the problem, has been endorsed by some of the problem.
Ross Hunter - yes, has had to live with the county problems as a State Representitive, he knows what he is getting into and is still willing to do it.
Goodspaceguy - no
THE sky is falling on King County government. The budget is unsustainable. The task of delivering services grows more challenging by the day.
For the first time since the current county government was created, no incumbent is seeking re-election as executive, creating enormous opportunity for change. Of several quality candidates seeking the job, two stand out ahead of the others, state Rep. Ross Hunter and state Sen. Fred Jarrett. Both are endorsed with equal enthusiasm.
. . .
Jarrett and Hunter are thoughtful and prepared — ready to make difficult changes in areas where the budget is imploding. Vote confidently for Jarrett or Hunter for county executive.
