34th District Democrats’ latest round of endorsements

Breaking news (the gray whale at Arroyo Beach) caused us to miss this week’s 34th District Democrats meeting, including a candidates’ forum with the three D’s running for State House, Position 2. Big thanks to Dina Johnson for the photo (her full gallery from the meeting is here) – from left, that’s Mike Heavey, Joe Fitzgibbon, and Marcee Stone. There’s an article about the forum on PubliCola. According to the 34th DDs’ website, they won’t endorse anyone in the race until their next meeting May 12 (explained here), but they did make endorsements Wednesday night in several other races: Current State Sen. Joe McDermott for King County Council Position 8, State Rep. (Position 1) Eileen Cody for re-election, current State Rep. Sharon Nelson for State Senate, U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott for re-election, and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray for reelection. (The May 12 meeting, 7 pm at The Hall at Fauntleroy as usual, also will feature the legislative report from Sen. McDermott and Reps. Cody and Nelson, postponed when this week’s agenda got too busy.)

    Good choice!! I would rather look at a dead whale too!

      Well, it wasn’t really a matter of what we would “rather” do … When we got the call, it wasn’t yet clear whether the whale was still alive or dead (turned out to have died shortly after we made it down to the Arroyos). First dead gray whale in West Seattle in 11 years, so one of us had to stay with the story. The 34th DDs are always a VERY lively group to cover so we really did regret the miss … tried to find backup help to send there but nobody was available on short notice. TR

    We missed you WSB and always appreciate your coverage.

Sorry, comment time is over.
