And the Finalists For City Council Position #9 Are…

Posted by on January 23 at 10:05 AM

Six women, five of them minorities:

Sharon Maeda (with seven of eight possible votes);
Stella Chao (with seven votes)
Sally Clark (with six votes)
Ven Knox (with five votes)
Venus Velasquez
Dolores Sibonga

The last two were chosen in a series of tiebreaking votes. In the final vote, Sibonga beat Rainier Valley Chamber of Commerce president Darryl Smith five to three.

Too bad for Sally Clark. I really like her, but unfortunately she probably doesn't have enough melanin in her skin to be selected by this council. When did racism come back into vouge here in Seattle? How long have I been asleep.

Well it would have been a lot more entertaing to decide this all by Dodgeball.
How about IQ tests or the WASL.
Maybe Rock,Paper Scissors.
Yes try that at home and see if you "agree" with the Council.
