Aug 20 Aaron commented on State Supreme Court Upholds SeaTac's Minimum Wage Law.
Why does it matter what Sawant has to say about this? Did she do anything other than show up for photo ops with respect to County prop 1? Oh yeah, The Stranger is the campaign office for Sawant.

You guys are so full of shit. To say that opposition to a city income tax but being in favor of a state income tax makes no sense, makes no sense. The idea is perfectly sound, and Banks will accomplish more of a progressive agenda than Sawant can hope to. Why should the earners in the city take on the costs of supporting the major economic center of the entire state? They should not, while at the same time an income based tax is very much needed at the state level.

The Stranger uses a heavy thumb looking for confrontation. Confrontation that ultimately does not advance a progressive agenda, but is more about tapping populism and grand standing. Banks will be far more responsive to the needs of the district rather than building a populist base for greater ambitions.

Sawant is given credit for "$15 Now" and takes it at every opportunity, in spite of the fact that she voted against the eventual negotiated legislation. Negotiation doesn't seem to be her thing, although I've heard it can be pretty useful in passing legislation.

How about whipping our local driver community into shape? All the time motorists violate stop lines and cross walks, block the box, make illegal right and left turns... Bicycles are low impact, and everyone riding one is saving the city and state major bucks in reduced wear of our roads. It is time the automobile drivers dropped the attitude that roads are meant for them.

@1: Interestingly, people who live in Boston no longer think of the Big Dig as a boondoggle. They like it.

We learned today that "(Bents are viaduct support structures along the length of the route)", so now we're all a nug away from being a civil engineer! Wonder when I can do my license exam.
