my first foray in Seattle city politics
Friday. 10.31.03 10:06 am
Last night I attend a Seattle city council debate sponsored by The Stranger. It was held at UW. Mike and I decided to go so we could see the candidates in action. The following candidates showed up: Judy Nicastro, Peter Steinbrueck, Zander Batchelder, Tom Rasmussen, Margaret Pageler's husband, Heidi Wills, and John Manning. The person running against Judy did not attend as Judy is enthusiastically supported by The Stranger. The same goes for Heidi's opponent. Peter is running against Zander. Tom is running against Margaret. Although Margaret did not make the debate she sent her husband in her place. The Stranger is a big fan of anyone running against Margaret Pageler.

After hearing the debates I understand why The Stranger likes Judy Nicastro and Heidi Wills, both are smart and well spoken and I generally agree with their positions. They both get my vote. On the subject of John Manning I could not disagree more. The man was arrested for domestic abuse on his wife and he had the nerve to talk about how little we do for victims of domestic violence and how he would make sure this changes. Can you say hypocrite? As I don't like his opponent either, I will be abstaining from this race. Tom Rasmussen an openly gay man who is running again Margaret Pageler an openly bitter old woman has my vote. I thought he was very thoughtfull in his answers and good heartedly received a lap dance from a female stripper during the debate while his husband watched. Too funny! That brings me to Peter vs Zander. The Stranger supports Peter Steinbrueck but I have to disagree. On paper he seemed fine but in person at the debate he seemed pompous and not very insightful. While Zander is obviously just trying to make a statement by running without raising any money for his campaign, I actually thought he had alot of good answers to the questions posed by the moderators and audience. I think he gets my vote.

As far as the initiatives on the ballot this election, I am voting No on initiative 841 to repeal state ergonomics regulations. Mike is out of work today and can never be a programmer again because he developed repetitive stress injury in his wrists and elbows. This was a direct result of programming for many hours on end for years in non ergonomic conditions.I am also voting Yes on charter amendment 5 to elect city council members by district. This just makes sense to me. It is the way the rest of our politicians are elected, why not the city council.

That is it for me. Don't forget to vote on November 4th.
