Day Seven…

Posted by on September 22 at 9:21 AM

It’s Day Seven of my money’s captivity in Greg Nickels’ campaign coffers.

If you’re just tuning in, back in May I wrote Greg Nickels a $300 check, my support for the mayor largely based on his support for the monorail. Last Friday Nickels “withdrew” his support for the monorail, and I subsequently withdrew my support for Greg. When the mayor took the city’s Transit Way Agreement back from the SMP, I told the mayor I wanted my money back.

Well, it’s been seven days, and no check. One of the mayor’s guys told a Stranger reporter not to ask Greg about my demand; apparently it’s a sore subject. He also told the Stranger staffer that my check was in the mail. Well, now it’s going to get even more complicated. I’m off on a book tour, and that check is going to have to find its way to me before this crisis ends.

Where’s my money, Greg? I’m headed to New York City, where I’ll be staying at the Bryant Park Hotel. Can you have it sent there? I’d like to do some shopping.
