Achieve the Four Modernizations.

1:26 PM yesterday Zander commented on Transit Advocates Dance on the Grave of Tom Rasmussen.
Tom did ok and was a major improvement over his predecessor Margaret Pageler. He was also a sincere and long term advocate for the elderly and homeless and any else in need of human services.

Our transit problems are due to Seattle's geography and misguided schemes to team up with the County or State. It is not Tom' s fault that we did not start building a subway system in the '70s.

The Seattle City Council is supposed to be non-partisan. It is a misuse of the Seattle Channel to promote any party.

Heidi-

Nice piece. It matches my post from January 6th. Even uses some of the same language. So do you not read Ansel stuff or has the Slog Tipper thing been retired?

Zander commented on Kshama Sawant Is Considering Running Against Sally Clark for a Citywide Council Seat.

Hey, I actually read Charter Amendment 19. It requires district candidates to be a resident for 120 days before filing. The last day to file in May 15th so a candidate would have to establish residency by January 15 to qualify. If Jess Spears,or anyone else, wants to move into a District to run there, they need to get a move on.
Jan 7 Zander commented on Why Rod Hearne Is Taking on Kshama Sawant in Council District 3.
For shits-and-giggles value alone it would be great if someone challenged Sawant from the left. Preferably a candidate with North Korean style rhetoric who is eager to denounce her for her "running dog lackey" ways etc, etc. There is never an anarchist around when you need one.
Jan 7 Zander commented on Meet John Persak, Who's Challenging Tim Burgess for a Citywide Council Seat.
I tend to be suspicious of people who label themselves as "Progressive". They are usually advocating a laundry list of issues that that most Seattleites already support but have few if any ideas to make "progess" on any of them. Having said that, Persak is doing a public service by knocking Tsimermann out of the race.

Chefjoe-

Theoretically, yes. I think her opponents would paint her as a carpetbagger though. And rightfully so...

Those insidious North Koreans have hit us right in the dick-jokes. It'll be a sad Xmas indeed as millions are forced to re watch "Pineapple express".

Cary-



(Using my serious voice) Are you interested in running for District 7?
