So the other day my mom texts me and asks me where my endorsements are. Now of course, I could have just pointed her to the 26th democrats page and called it done. However, I don't totally agree with my fellow democrats all the time so yes, there is a need for MY endorsements.
This is a fine selection of “stuff that has been in my mailbox and I bet yours too if you live in the 26th district like me”. Crazy, isn't it? (Hands down BEST ad in my opinion was the “follow Jan Angel's money” ad in the upper left corner. That was brilliant!)
Let's talk our first endorsement by me, which would be to retain Senator Nathan Schlicher. Nathan is perhaps one of the first legislators I've been excited about in a couple of years now. I say excited because I feel that he brings fresh, youthful enthusiasm to the senate floor. We need fresh ideas. We need new faces. We need Senator Nathan Schlicher and we need him now.
(My thoughts on Jan Angel will be covered in a different story)Second endorsement list is for the city of Port Orchard. I'm trying to recollect who is running for city council…oh yes. My choices for city council in Port Orchard are Fred Chang, Rob Putaansuu and Bek Ashby. All three people are people I know, people whom I feel are deeply committed to making Port Orchard an outstanding place to not only visit but to call home too.This year who brought the fun to the election besides us here in the 26th legislative district? None other than the city of Bremerton. I can tell you a long laundry list of people who drove me absolutely batty crazy. I've narrowed my list down to two people, and that would be Dino Davis and Leslie Daugs. I met Dino earlier this year. Instantly I was impressed with his enthusiasm and his passion in wanting to make Bremerton shine. You know, I can say the same about Leslie too. I've known her for years and I've been in awe of her ability to take on any project and bring excellence to said project.
YES on 522 and NO on 517.
That's all I wanna say on this subject. In a sense, the 2013 election cycle has seriously disappointed me. Don't even get me started on why, but I firmly believe that more of the same is in store for election cycle 2014. If you're not voting, believe me, it's time you reconsider that thought. Do you want “more of the same”? I know I don't.
