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.

Most notable in these last-minute filings is Bill Sherman's entry into the King County Prosecuting Attorney race, which would be a fine step-up for him after coming in 3rd for last year's open 43rd district House seat.  Jim Nobles has also apparently switched from the open Seattle City Council seat to challenging Democratic King County Assessor Scott Noble.  Also interesting is longtime Republican frequent candidate Richard Pope challenging liberal Republican incumbent Jane Hague for her King County Council seat.  Perhaps Pope is attempting to win an upset on the Democratic-trending Eastside?  In Pierce County it appears that former Pierce County Councilman Harold Moss will be challenging first-term Tacoma City Councilman Spiro Manthou, setting up a potentially-close general election matchup.

There is the county you currently live in, are you considering posting filings here :)

You know, I thought about that. But the thing is, I don't ever hear much of anything about local politics in Pullman and being that I'm a total rookie on it I thought I'd stick with the larger cities that I actually pay some attention to.

There's also the problem that Eunice and company at the Auditors office can't seem to put such info on the internet :(

Yeah, that's really not acceptable for a decent-sized county like Whitman. Shame there likely won't be a credible opponent for that incumbent next time they're up.
