It’s Hardball in the Seattle School Board Races

A mysterious (to me anyway) independent expenditure group, Strong Seattle Schools, has formed and dumped a stunning $45,000 total into the three Seattle school board races: $15K to Jane Fellner (running against Stranger-endorsed Mary Bass), $15K to Linda Thompson-Black (running against Stranger-endorsed Cheryl Chow), and $15K to Stranger-endorsed Michael DeBell.

In a down-ticket race like the school board, this kind of cash flow could spell touble for Bass and Chow.
