Here is who we have to choose from in this November’s Election:
The candidates featured in this series are ones I have run a full background check on, and that I have investigated to the fullest of my ability. The one’s that I have endorsed are in bold letters. If neither candidate is in bold letters that means I can not find any good reason to endorse either of them.
I hope that you will also take the time to investigate and communicate with these people on your own as well. Don’t just take my word (or my opinion) for it.
You will also notice that I have not only crossed “party lines”, I have zig-zagged across them. I am not concerned about parties I am only interested in who has the citizens best interests at heart
You may also notice that some of the newer candidates have a “past” or may have had financial difficulties. As odd as this sounds those are the people we need in office. The people like 98% of the rest of us.
People who have never had to chose whether to buy medication or pay a power bill are so far out of touch with our reality that they have no business making any decisions for any of us.
Some have a criminal history. I have reviewed all of them, and all have been dismissed. The most important thing is that they were vindicated and didn’t use their political power to “get out of it” they fought for the truth and took their lumps so to speak.
City of Everett Council Position 1
Leland (Lee) Dart 3,335 25.77%
Leland has been telling the truth to the citizens of Everett for years in his own newspaper “My Everett News” he understands the issues and has tried in his position as a reporter to help us understand the issues as well. He is not afraid to rock a few boats, and he is an average citizen just like you and I. Not just a career politician taking care of his buddies. He is also keenly aware of who the problem people are and will be able to avoid the pitfalls of even being associated with them.
Paul Roberts 7,246 55.98%
If anyone can find anything meaningful that Mr Roberts has done besides managing to make a career out of staying in office then I would appreciate if someone could tell me. I have not found any meaningful or advantageous issues he has brought to the city that has made it any better. He and Jeff Moore seem to be more content following Brenda Stonecipher around trying to create new parks and making sure the developers get what they want and need.
