Spring Phase

Chairman Mark Greene, candidate and only challenger thus far for the Director of Elections position, is taking a few days rest from the campaign before the 3rd and final phase of the election candidacy petition effort. There is now a little more than 800 signatures on the petition, and as expected, the 2nd/winter season phase slowed down the pace of getting signatures, because of cold and downcast weather and a major election just passed. Come the 16th day of February, there will only be a few respites thereafter, on significant holidays, before filing week in early June. In the first (summer/autumn) phase, the campaign got a little more than 550 signatures; in the winter phase, we got a little more than 250; and now the spring phase (and for our purposes it's starting on February 16), we will need 1,200, which would give us more than 2,000 overall signatures. The spring phase will be about a month longer than the summer/autumn phase, but also keep in mind that the campaign only worked part-time in the first and second phases whereas we will work full time in the third phase.

Anybody that can request one petition page, and return anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures would be great, and probably the extra insurance that may be needed to get Mark on the ballot (contact information is below this paragraph). We are hoping that there will be no more challengers to Logan-Huff, thereby avoiding the necessity of a primary, but the campaign is ready for a primary, and has no doubt that the strength of it will catapult Mark into the General Election. The last time Mark officially qualified for an election with more than a thousand signatures was in 2004, the controversial Ninth Congressional District primary for U.S. Representative in which Mark probably won. Mark has since moved from the Ninth Congressional District, but he's going to need the 9th that's in K.C., again, and all of King County.
