I look at Jenny Durkan, and I see a distinguished career as a lawyer, but I don't see a political career where she had to take a stand on issues or pay her political dues. And just based on that Slog post on her announcing, I didn't see any positions on any issues. I'll be charitable to the reporter here, not the candidate.
(And this is not to say that Durkan hasn't made perfectly admirable career choices. A lot of us make perfectly admirable career choices. Just, not all of us are running for mayor of Seattle, thought it might seem like it.)
If it means major upzones, I'm all for it. If it means increasing the MHA fees to a level that will inhibit development, then I'm against.
I'm leaning towards McGinn so far because he is a known quantity and is urbanist. If Farrell can come up with a concrete proposal to end the housing shortage, I'm listening.
May the best candidate for Seattle--and Washington State--win.
