Luke Esser, the former state Republican chairman who lost his position in an upset election last month, is back in Olympia as a lobbyist – and his new client may cause a few jaws to drop at the statehouse.
Esser will represent Service Employees International Union Local 775, the union local that represents some 40,000 home-care workers.
I was wondering what would become of my former Senator after his defeat as party Chairman. I wondered because I kinda liked Luke based on the one and only time we met—when he rang my doorbell during his 2006 Senate campaign. We had a friendly conversation, even though we each stuck to our beliefs.
I just never imagined he would go all progressive on our asses! But…hey, better late than never, brother Luke!
