I've lost track of the number of rounds we've now gone over the question of Port Commissioner Gael Tarleton's eviro cred. Here comes another round, courtesy of a blistering release from the local Sierra Club:
In her election campaign against progressive champion Noel Frame, Port Commissioner Tarleton recently and publicly attacked her fellow commissioners and a local activist for their leadership on an issue of national importance to the Sierra Club—minimizing diesel pollution from port trucking. This is astonishing behavior for someone wishing to work with legislators in Olympia representing the progressive citizens of Seattle. But as a port commissioner who stood aside while polluters derailed key federal legislation needed by ports around the nation, and as a candidate who has accepted maximum donations from some of those same polluters, it may make sense.
