Everybody on the campaign, including Gael Tarleton, regrets the error and owns full responsibility for that error.

This is the note we sent to The Stranger along with SEAMEC's rating sheets from 2007 and 2011:

The 36th District ad is wrong. And we regret that error and take full responsibility for not catching that error. We congratulate Noel Frame on her SOLE endorsement by Equal Rights Washington and respect their decision to champion Noel. We will still celebrate Gael Tarleton's top ratings by SEAMEC in 2007, 2011 and 2012. Gael Tarleton was in fact endorsed by SEAMEC in 2011.

Gael was the first elected Port Commissioner to march in the Port's Pride Parade and has done so each year. She has advanced LGBT rights at the Port through anti-discrimination laws to ensure that all LGBT citizens have the full rights and benefits as their peers. Her senior campaign consultants were instrumental in the passage of R-71. And her political consultant Jason Bennett is an openly gay champion of LGBT rights and has been working with Gael since 2007.

We want Washington and all 36th District voters united behind approving marriage equality and R-74.

Again, Tarleton has been consistent on the coal train issue for months. We're glad her opponent finally did her homework. Welcome to the debate, we're glad you've finally arrived. From where we sit, it's clear Gael's opponent still has more homework to do on the key environmental issues facing our region.

When Gael Tarleton says "not one public dime" for fossil fuels or coal, that means she's opposed to coal and coal trains. She has met with environmental leaders in the community who say they want a regional environmental impact review of the coal industry on the state to document the industry's full impact on our communities. She supports the environmental community's action plan on this issue. The pro-coal proponents are opposed to a regional review of the industry that would document the footprint of the industry on the entire state, not just Seattle. The city of Seattle has the authority and jurisdiction to call for an expanded review of the environmental footprint that includes Seattle and other urban cities like Spokane also suffering from the coal train problem.

It's great to see the the mayor step up to the plate and offer his leadership today to call for a regional approach to tackle this problem that includes ALL community leaders. And Gael will certainly be there to lend her leadership, experience and knowledge on this issue.

Gael has a proven record at the Port launching clean fuels at the airport and seaport while ensuring the Port meets clean air standards two years ahead of the EPA mandate. She has served as an advisor to Al Gore's commission on global climate change and the U.S. Dept. of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to grow the region's clean energy economy.

None of these efforts have been a secret. They have been a part of Tarleton's ongoing dialogue with community leaders every step of the way as this issue evolves.

Seattle Channel WCV Debate
June 13, 2012

http://www.seattlechannel.org/videos/vid…

Question to the candidates:
69:50: How would you assess the impact of the Puget Sound Partnership? We founded a state organization to help clean up Puget Sound. I think three years ago, what you have them do differently?

72:58/Linde Knighton: “I’m going to make good on a campaign promise. I don’t know enough about the Puget Sound Partnership to talk about it. I need to learn from you, what Puget Sound Partnership is.”

Noel: “I like that. You know, I want to honor that actually. I really try to be straightforward in these debates. I am not a politician. I recruit people to run for public office for a living. I know what they look like, but I try not to be one.”

“And you to that end. The Puget Sound Partnership, they’ve only been around for five years, they hit it, a downturn, but beyond that, I think they are doing some good stuff and they need to move forward. I too, am not well versed on that particular institution or that organization as I should be to sufficiently answer this question. Thank you Linde. This is why I like her in debates. You’re delightful. Thank you.”

Gael: “In our communities and at the Port of Seattle, the Puget Sound Partnership, People for Puget Sound, Puget Sound Keepers Alliance, Cascade Bicycle Club, so many groups have worked to make the Puget Sound Partnership impact towards what is its potential. I equate the Puget Sound Partnership to a start up. The first few years you are really revved and getting enthused, and you’re really hopeful, and then you hit major obstacles. The major obstacle for Puget Sound Partnerships is they have no local authority to influence decisions of local elected bodies.”

To: NoCoaltrainsinOurCommunities: Good questions that demand and deserve solid answers. I've already passed them on to Gael. Let's work together on this and make something happen: 253.592.1590. Sue

Gael Tarleton has not launched an attack on her opponent, but simply responded to attacks from her opponent and calls from the media on those attacks.

Tarleton has been consistent on the coal train issue for months when her opponent admitted she didn't know what the issue was about. It's encouraging to see her opponent finally found her footing on this issue that has been going on for months.

When Gael Tarleton says "not one public dime" for fossil fuels or coal, that means she's opposed to coal and coal trains. She has met with environmental leaders in the community who say they want a regional environmental impact review of the coal industry on the state to document the industry's full impact on our communities.
