The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

A change for the better

Today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer speculates that the King County Council will be much more bipartisan and friendly if Bob Ferguson's lead holds. With two of the presumed five Democrats being independent-minded (Julia Patterson being the other, to a lesser extent), it would break the Democratic machine's stranglehold on power without having to work productively with minority Republicans. This would mean a refreshing change in King County government, regardless of the outcome of the county executive race. We can only hope Ferguson can hold his lead, with several thousand ballots left to count, according to projections.
