Linda Averill’s Impressive Showing

Posted by on September 21 at 14:16 PM

Well, Stranger-endorsed-Freedom-Socialist Linda Averill didn’t make it through the primary. But her 18 percent showing was more than respectable. Congrats Linda! You raised legitimate issues and you raised them well. We hope to see you in the next municipal cycle.

And show up as a Democrat next time. I mean, come on: Jimmy Carter was enough to drive you from the Democratic Party (because he reinstated draft registration), and Pol Pot, Mao, Castro et el. aren’t enough to drive you away from the Socialist/Marxist left? Jimmy Carter? (And isn’t a draft more equitable than the de facto racist, classist draft we’ve got in place right now?)

P.s. To the 14 percent of you who voted for Angel Bolanos: What were you thinking?
