    And don’t even think of voting for Weatbrook!

    O’Brien has to go. Vote for Weatbrook!

    O’Brien will have more time for kayaktivism once Weatbrook is representing us in the City Council. Win-win!

    Catherine will have more time to sit on the design review committee or enforce other covenants/codes/restrictions in her sheltered enclave at Olympic Manor while Mike represents us on the City Council.

    Now that is win-win.

    What does Weatbrook stand for, besides the stagnation of our society and hating the homeless?

    Weatbrook also hates people that bicycle.
    Gluten Free, that’s funny. Especially if she spelled it Wheatbrook.

    Weatbrook endorsed by the Seattle Times today.

  • 10 Observed // Oct 1, 2015 at 9:20 am

    @An Observer: So now she shares something in common with Dino Rossi and Rob McKenna!

    “Weatbrook endorsed by the Seattle Times today.”
    Another great reason not to vote for her!!!

    I think Dems and Reps and Inds would all agree that WA would be better off today if we had anyone but “go-hide-in-my-office” Inslee as Governor.

    Gregoire may have had issues, but at least she knew how to properly bang the legislators’ heads together to get them to finally produce a budget.
