Someone Get this Man a Map

Posted by on September 9 at 13:02 PM

Every two years around this time, campaign mailers start showing up in voters’ mailboxes. Renters like me tend to get left out of the loop, because we move around and mailing lists get updated only every few years. So far this year, I’ve received exactly one campaign mailer - from King County Council member Larry Gossett, who’s running for reelection on the newly redistricted county council. Unfortunately, I don’t live in Larry Gossett’s district - my neighborhood is represented by Larry Phillips, whose district stretches from Greenlake to Boeing Field. I shudder to think how much money Larry Gossett has wasted on glossy campaign flyers for people who aren’t even in his district.
