The Transit Riders’ Union did what we should have, and sent a questionnaire to all Seattle City Council, County Executive, and Seattle Mayoral candidates. They ask pretty much the questions that I would ask.
If you’re undecided and care about our issues this read is indispensable.
Initial impressions: David Ginsberg is a really strong candidate and I wish he were running against someone other than Conlin; Jesse Israel is good, more than just “not Licata”; Rosencrantz (running against O’Brien) is far worse than I realized.
The non-responses by Susan Hutchison and Joe Mallahan continue a trend of not taking transit advocates and their issues seriously.
