  2. Well he certainly keeps trying. Which should prompt us citizens to question – is goodspaceguy really good? Who’s funding his high living political career?

  3. Perhaps Mike the Mover. (Bonus points for anyone who remembers…)

  4. I remember him, perennial cannidate. He used to park an RV with his campaign banner on Occidental Ave outside the Kingdome 10-15 years ago.

  5. Gawd, what is wrong with this town? Will we ever learn from our voting?

  7. What % of the vote has been counted?

  8. Conlin is not back in yet; Sawant got 34%; if she can pick up the leftover 17% from Carver, we could actually get a real progressive on city council

  9. I tried to edit the post above, but the edit function would not open for me; so adding
    ~
    that 17% from Carver is likely mostly “anyone but Conlin” votes, which would go to Sawant

  10. Murray is our next mayor.

  11. I heard Mike the Mover ran every year just so he could advertise his company

  12. Exactly! I don’t know how cost-effective that really is, though … but at some point he did legally change his name.
