November, Here We Come

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, 2010-09-07 10:21

Sen. Patty Murray speaks to a sold-out crowd of Democrats at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal on August 31.

Its campaign season again and we have a real fight on our hands. The Glenn Beck fans and the corporate interests are frothing at the mouth at a chance to undo all the good things President Obama, Sen. Murray, and Rep. Larsen have achieved. On the local level, our own Rep. Kelli Linville, after being praised as the all-star legislator we know she is, needs our help to return to Olympia and do the good work that needs to be done. We need to send her back with back-up in the form of Al Jensen and Pat Jerns in the 42nd, and Kris Lytton and Jeff Morris in the 40th.

Where is our outrage?

by Terry Bornemann, Bellingham City Councilman

When George Bush began his presidency he was blessed with a budget surplus. Eight years later he had turned that surplus into the biggest deficit in U.S. history. He got us into two major wars without any plan to finance them or and without an exit strategy for Iraq or Afghanistan. His deregulation policies and lack of federal oversight set the stage for the biggest financial collapse since the great depression. This was the stage set for President Obama when he came to office. He was left with an economy on the brink of collapse, two unfunded wars, and an unprecedented budget deficit.

The Whatcom Democrats extend their thanks to all of our certified Democratic candidates that didn’t make it past the primary. Running for public office is a challenge, but it represents a deep commitment to public service, and regardless of electoral success, that is to be valued.

Justice Races Likely Decided in Primary

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 2010-07-29 13:23

Most elected judge positions in Washington State operate on different election rules than we are used to. If one candidate receives more than fifty percent of the vote in the Primary Election, then that person only will appear on the General Election ballot. This means, in races where there are only two candidates, the election is decided in the Primary. Even if there are three candidates, it is possible for one candidate to garner over 50% in the Primary.
