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.

Compton out

Councilman incognito Jim Compton is set to resign his office two years before his term expires, according to the Seattle PI. After phoning multiple other members of the City Council, Nick Licata confirmed Compton's intentions to leave office and study in Europe. I never heard a peep out of Compton while in office, so i'll be quite interested to see who is chosen to fill his seat.

The Stranger's Slog has circled a few names for Compton's replacement, and explained the surprisingly narrow 20-day appointment timeline. Among their list is 2005 loser Dwight Pelz, who had previously appeared to be the favourite to replace Paul Berendt as chairman of the Democratic Party.
