News You Know Your City Council Candidates aren’t Too Impressive When…

School Board, County Prosecutor, and Port candidates are higher quality.
We’re winding down our endorsement interview process for the August 21 primary—had two more batches of candidates in today (one candidate told us two separate parables about dry wall)—and I have to repeat what I said at the start of this process: Why aren’t any of the top-shelf candidates running for city council?
We are meeting a lot of smart, on-point, persuasive, passionate, original thinking candidates in all the races except for City Council. If only people like Darlene Flynn and Sherry Carr (school board candidates), Bill Sherman and Keith Scully (KC prosecutor candidates) were running for city council—non-committal (and unpersuasive) people like Sally Clark wouldn’t stand a chance.
Hey, Sally. One more time: You do? Or you don’t? Think Mayor Nickels has failed to hold SPD Chief Kerlikowske accountable? Your “answer” the first time was, well, way too Sally Clark.
