Island County, WA

In this blog's recognition of Washington's 39 counties, each of the next 39 posts on Commoner will be named in honor of a county, in alphabetical order starting with Adams. The county that is recognized on a particular day does not necessarily correlate with the particular topic chosen for that day other than in the general sense.

My Fellow Washingtonians,

I am celebrating my 36th year this summer of being in elections in states as diverse as Michigan, Minnesota, Alaska and Washington, with my only two victories coming in Alaska for the Alaskan Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives (the years 2000 and 2002).  However, there was a controversial primary for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 9th Congressional District of Washington in 2004 in which I probably won, but the mystery surrounding that election has never been solved, and any facts about it may be in the papers of the office of the U.S. District Attorney of Western Washington, now directed by Jenny Durkan.  If any enterprising reporter wants to find out about election disenfranchisement and theft, they may want to make a Freedom of Information request and get to the bottom of that '04 G.O.P. primary.  Reports about that primary are also located in the archives of this blog, and there are several different essays such as these:

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. 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! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
