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.

Block Jr. in for Port

According to a recent Public Disclosure Commission filing, Jack Block Jr. is running for Seattle Port Commission against incumbent Bob Edwards. If the name sounds familiar, it should, as Jack Block Sr. served on the Port Commission prior to being defeated by Lawrence Molloy in 2001. Block Jr. has served as a member of the Burien City Council since 2003, and is a Democrat (the office is nonpartisan, however).

Just about all I know about Block is contained in this post, so at this point it's difficult to judge how serious a challenge he can pose to the Republican Edwards. However, given his family ties and that he is currently a municipal officeholder, it seems to me he could represent a solid challenge.
