Politics Are Supposed To Be Stuffy

posted by on June 25 at 13:10 PM

Apparently Washington Bus Project didn’t get the memo. Look at this event they’re doing Wednesday at the Central Area Senior Center (?):

MC’d 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.

Holy Shit!

LOOK FIERCE.

I can't make out the label on Godden's ID tag, but it appears too long for just the letters in her name. Could it be a hilarious vanity license plate?

How old school. The very first time I saw your beloved editor, he was in Ellen Craswell drag when she was running against Gary Locke. I've searched for pictures, but I probably won't be able to find any unless I trek down to UW and see if the GBLTC took any.

Cupcake reception to follow

Central Area Senior Center
500 30th Avenue S.
Seattle WA 98144

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.

Guests:
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.

=====================================================================
---The fine print---
the Washington Bus Project is a civic engagement organization that is utilizing culture (music,
poetry, dance) to move young people into political action.

That action can be as simple as voter registration to as intense as running for office or
defeating something akin to the Teen Dance Ordinance (boo, hiss).

We're new in Washington and are a teeny non-profit but we have a leetle tiny web site.
