Incumbent city attorney Pete Holmes and friends will chill out together as the people vote. Here's a quick overview of Holmes, courtesy of Stranger reporter Heidi Groover: "Holmes, serving his second term as city attorney, has made a name for himself siding with pot legalization activists. In 2010, two years before Washington legalized cannabis possession, Holmes refused to prosecute people arrested for possession. Last year, he vowed to crack down on illegal delivery services he believed were undermining the legal market. Currently, Holmes is suing the Trump Administration over its threats to pull funding from sanctuary cities. His office is also defending the city's landmark legislation allowing Uber drivers to unionize and fighting an ACLU lawsuit challenging the city's encampment sweeps. Holmes is also the one who, with support from Murray's office, hired a private investigator to try to hunt down the source who provided former Stranger reporter Ansel Herz documents related to the city's secret negotiations with the police union. That investigator was paid about $65,000 ($325 an hour) and turned up nothing."
