Politics Re: Where Have All the City Hall Candidates Gone?

Yesterday, when I slogged about the fact that not too many people are running for City Council, I added this caveat: “I imagine with all the consultants in town talking people into running (so that they’ve got some business), more candidates will file.”
Soon enough, this e-mail landed in my in-box:
There is only one consultant in town who goes around recruiting people. It’s a Seattle political tradition for Cathy Allen to recruit somebody with high name ID and then wait until filing week for them to announce.
So, who do you think Cathy Allen will get this year? Jean Enersen? Bill Nye The Science Guy? Matt Hasselback? Dan Savage?
I can tell you that Dan is not running. (Nor ECB, for that matter.)
