34th District Democrats endorse Constantine, bridge name

From Wednesday night’s 34th District Democrats meeting, Bill Schrier sent that photo with word that West Seattle’s largest political organization “overwhelmingly endorsed” King County Council Chair Dow Constantine in his run for King County Executive (which is now officially a nonpartisan position), and contributed $3,434.34 to his campaign. Earlier in his political career, Constantine served as 34th District State Senator and Representative. We interviewed him the day he announced his Executive candidacy (see the story here); we have since interviewed his major opponent (so far), County Councilmember Larry Phillips, and plan to publish that story later today. P.S. from tonight’s 34th DDs’ meeting: They also heard from two other West Seattleites who you’ll see on the ballot this fall, City Council candidates David Ginsberg and Dorsol Plants. And the group endorsed a resolution to rename the West Seattle Bridge in honor of former City Councilmember Jeanette Williams (we first told you about the naming campaign back in January).

    It ain’t broke. Don’t fix it. Do not rename the bridge. But if it must be renamed, don’t change any of the signage on I-5 and other places where the name serves a real purpose.

    @ C. Blaine:

    It’s an honor thing…

    Do you notice when you drive over the George Washington Bridge (Aurora Bridge) or the Governor Albert D. Rossellini Bridge (Evergreen Point Bridge/520)?

Sorry, comment time is over.
