"Commons" Names Ellen Elizabeth Greene to Hall of Fame

On June 4th, 2009, the Party of Commons has named Ellen Elizabeth Greene (1933 - 2006), teacher, counselor and theologian, Mark's late mother, to the Party of Commons's Hall of Fame, along with the "Great Commoner," William Jennings Bryan, who was named at the party's inception on November 23rd, 2006.

As of today, neither of the challengers have filed. We're not making any allegations so far, but it's not unheard of in politics for surrogates to be put up to running by sympathizers of the incumbent, if not in fact by "lieutenants" from the incumbent's campaign, to dilute the vote of the strongest challenger.

This King County Council is the same council that tried to make it extremely hard to amend the county charter by putting up a ballot question (which is very easy for them to do; they don't have to collect petition signatures) that would have doubled the number of signatures for lay citizens to put up…
