Speaking of Jamie Pedersen…
The “only gay candidate” for the 43rd state legislative district has friends in high places. Like the IDX Tower.
Pedersen’s raised $86,000 so far. Of that, $15,500—nearly 20 percent—has come from contributors in his own law firm, downtown behemoth Preston, Gates & Ellis. Other big donors include employees of Microsoft ($2,050), Vulcan ($1,000), Pyramid Real Estate ($1,400), and the Urban Realty Group ($1,000).
Looks like the Downtown Seattle Association has found its candidate.
