According to the Washington State Democrats Endorsement finder, Richard Conlin got the endorsement of all of the Democratic Party organizations. “Endorsed by King, 11th, 32nd, 34th, 36th, 37th, 43rd, 46th” I think it’s time for us to do some soul searching. Not just because our electoral infrastructure might not be up to the task in off year elections, but if the voters of Seattle disagree with the Democratic Party in this municipal race, where else are we failing to connect with the voters we depend on to put candidates into office that will help us enact our agenda? (It’s the PLATFORM, Stupid) Was Kshama closer than Richard on our platform issues? Raising the minimum wage, fighting corporate greed, etc. I read her issues page, and thought “wouldn’t this be cool”, then voted for Richard because I know him and trust him. I guess my first impression was right. Seattle is about to show just how cool it is.
