It has been longstanding advice from political candidates, regardless of their political affiliation, to remind citizens to vote for the candidates that they think will serve their needs best. With that in mind, I have created a simple outline for guidance:
If you like finding used syringes in our city parks, streets, and other public areas, where children and other innocent individuals can get injured (or worse) from them, vote for the incumbents.
If you like the fact that Sound Transit illegally stole tax revenues from residents of King and Snohomish counties to fund an outdated, obsolete-on-arrival transit system without any resistance from your legislators, then vote to retain the incumbents.
If you like that some 90 percent of our elected state representatives voted last session to exempt their emails with constituents from public disclosure, keeping them secret, then vote to retain these rascals.
If you like the fact that you can have your RV impounded and be cited for illegally parking in front of your own residence, in some cases, while homeless individuals are neither cited nor subject to impound regardless of where they park their broken-down RVs, then vote for the incumbents.
However, if you are tired of the whining, the excuses, the waste of your tax dollars, and the attempts to place the blame for local problems on the federal government, while working to hide local, government operations from the public view, then vote for fresh ideas and individuals in this election, not incumbents!
