I Guess There Are No Progressives Running for Anything in Seattle…

posted by on June 14 at 12:27 PM

Goldy from HorsesAss is putting on a candidate forum to showcase progressive candidates up for office around the state this year. Maybe he’ll be doing a second one or two where locals like Port reform candidate Gael Tarleton or KC Prosecutor candidates Bill Sherman or Keith Scully will take the microphone, but for now he’s bringing in folks from Whatcom County, Sea Tac, and Bellevue.

Hosted by Darcy Burner, 8th Congressional District front-runner, the Derby will feature a Jean Godden look-alike contest along with a spirited discussion on education, environment, election reform, economic development, equal rights and transportation.

The Washington Bus introduces you to progressives running for office across the state. Hear their vision and get on the bus to support them. We are led by gifted volunteers and partnered with brilliant organizations like Progressive Majority to make things happen. We’re so new that we’re still wearing onesies. If anyone in your house wears onesies, bring them along too. Prizes for the best Godden get-up.

Ken Mann - Whatcom County Council, District 2, Position B
Mia Gregersen SeaTac City Council, Position 3
Keri Andrews Bellevue City Council, Position 7

Thanks to the Central Area Senior Center and Cupcake Royale.

Someone better tell Venus she isn't a progressive - my guess is she'll be just as shocked at that as I would ...

umm, Goldy is not putting this on. Washington Bus a new organization is. Check your facts Josh

Um, Josh, you do realize that "across the state" means "places not limited exclusively to Seattle", right? There's a notorious disconnect between Seattle progressives and, well, everyone else in the rest of the state. Of the many, many, many forums that have been and will be held around here, I think one can safely go on without a Seattle candidate mucking up the joint.

It's THOMAS Goldstein not David.

Here's the sister project in O.R.:, and why I called you in the first place. See what happens when you don't return my calls? :9
