I’m here with Andrew at Drinking Liberally, an every Tuesday event at the Montlake Alehouse, to talk about progressive politics. I don’t normally come to this very often, but today we have Pierce County executive John Ladenburg here to talk about his bid for Attorney General.
We asked him about his position on the 15 year package, and he was blunt. He said he doesn’t want to go to ballot unless they have 15 of the 18 votes. The maybes right now are von Reichbauer, from Federal Way, who is a likely yes, and Aaron Reardon and Deanna Dawson. With those three, he’ll be number fifteen, and we’ll be ready to go to ballot.
Ladenburg also mentioned that if this passes, he’d be interested in annexing part of Thurston County to run Sounder all the way to the capitol! This is a great idea – there’s track to get nearly all the way there, and this is something I’ve personally been looking at as a great next step.
