Tomorrow is another one of those ridiculous stealth elections for King County Conservation District Board, and thus yet another golden opportunity for an anti-conservation conservative to grab a seat he could never otherwise win. Paper Noose has the details over at Blogging Georgetown, and… well… it’s just plain depressing.
I’ve received a bunch of emails urging me to write in Mark Sollitto, and that’s exactly what I plan to do, assuming that is, I manage to vote at all. Voting is conducted in person at only 13 polling places set up throughout the county; the nearest ones to me are at the main branch of the Seattle Public Library or at the Renton Community Center. Neither is very convenient, which helps explain why so few people actually vote in these bullshit elections.
If local Republicans had their way, this is how all our elections would be run. So let’s try not to let them have their way on this one: get out there and vote tomorrow for Mark Sollitto.
