"Commons" Makes Pre-Primary Campaign Swing

With the election just days away, Mark Greene is on the verge of either placing 1st or 2nd place and qualifying for the general election in the race for Metropolitan King County Council in the 9th District. Although 2nd place would not be an outright victory, it would be a victory nonetheless, because it would keep us in the running, and give us time to overturn the overwhelming advantages of the incumbent, advantages that include money, excessive use of taxpayer funded brochures for ostensible government purposes, and all the other advantages of incumbency that, in virtually all governmental positions, have made practical lifetime tenures practically unchallengeable. However, that doesn't mean that there shouldn't be challenges or that changes to laws to bring about fairer elections, such as publically financed elections, shouldn't be made.

"Commons" is making a concerted pre-primary swing through the 9th District in order to secure the second spot for Mark, and we will be prepared for the general election as well. Victory in November is on the horizon!

Help Mark win this election and in turn help to make elections fairer, because Mark will push for fair election laws either in office or in campaigns, among his other stated campaign objectives. Your vote is needed by Tuesday, August 18th, because we have a feeling that the gap between 2nd and 3rd place, and thereby qualifying for the general election, will not be particularly large.

ALL BALLOTS POSTMARKED BY TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 2009, WILL BE ACCEPTED BY THE ELECTIONS DEPARTMENT AS A VOTE!

Post-post-script:
The news media and the bloggers have used unflattering phraseology in describing Mark's statements or his campaign generally, have made errors in fact, have misquoted his utterances (for instance, he never said he was trying to qualify for the primary; he's already qualified for the primary), and they have generally succeeded in damaging Mark's campaign to some extent; one more reason why your vote is very important, for it could help to lessen the power of the media to control elections.
