Primary Road

A Big Advantage in the Election for Lieutenant Governor

By time the ballots are finished being counted for the Director of Elections election, Mark Greene expects to have about 90,000 votes in King County, and if we're lucky, reaching 100,000.  If Mark manages to keep at least 75% of these great supporters for the Lieutenant Governor primary next summer, that could mean about 67,000 - 75,000 votes in only 1 out of 39 counties.  The incumbent is from Mason County.  Lisa Brown is from Spokane County.  It will be possible for a 3rd party candidate to place in the Top 2, because we're hoping that several Republicans will run, thereby splitting their vote by 4 or more, and that Owen and Brown will divide the Democratic vote by one having a very decisive outcome over the other.  Mark must come ahead of one of them in the primary or there could be 2 Democrats in the General Election.

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, so Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order.  If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark will concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems.  Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with.  If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling (if it was politically possible, an outright ban would be preferable).  People won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously.  Please, send an e-mail to mark@partyofcommons.com to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot.  Thanks.

Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you!
