I just left a very happy Sue Peters election party. Directors Smith-Blum, McLaren and Peaslee were in attendance.
KUOW's Ann Dornfeld's take on the Dale Estey/Peters campaign parties (very funny):
At Peters’ party, it’s a mostly middle-aged crowd milling about the
room, drinking wine and cocktails. There are purple balloons, sandwiches
and cured meats. It’s a festive mood.
It’s less festive at Estey’s campaign party, where there’s a sparser crowd and most of the guests appear to be drinking water.
