Good morning. If you live in the 3rd District in Seattle, I hope you will vote again the recall of Kshama Sawant. I am glad that she has been a left anchor on the council. From the $15 minimum wage to holding the line on many progressive issues, she has been a net positive on the council.
Furtjer, the things that she is accused of are pretty ticky tacky. If you want to fine her, I guess? But having wealthy people fund her recall is not reasonable or proportionate. It’s tough to imagine one of the more conservative members facing a recall for similar reasons.
I will also add that many of the arguments against her were true when she ran last time. DSA has too much power in her office? She can be tough to work with? These arguments were made and rejected. She’ll be up for reelection, or won’t run in less than 2 years if you want to recruit someone.
Anyway, please wash your hands right now. And get vaccinated if you haven’t yet.
