In their endorsement meeting tonight, the 34th Dems (West Seattle) gave their endorsement to challenger Marty McClaren by a whopping 62% over incumbent Steve Sundquist. The attendance at the meeting was about 150 participants.
Apparently Steve's supporters tried to bolster his case using...TFA. Trying to be objective here, I gotta say that I don't think anyone should lead with TFA to get re-elected.
First, most people won't know what it is. Second, it would probably cause more confusion trying to explain it and explain how there isn't a shortage of teachers but the district is doing it anyway. Third, it costs the district money (but I forgot, none of the incumbents want to acknowledge that).
I am honestly hoping the challengers do their homework and give the incumbents a real challenge for this election.
