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.
SNOHOMISH COUNTY COUNCIL- DISTRICT 4
Marcus Barton (Prefers Republican Party) 6,432 31.37%
Marcus is just another citizen just like you and I, the critical difference is that he understands about land use and with the population boom, the new commercial flights out of Paine Field, and all the new business coming to Snohomish County we need someone who has been through hard times, someone who has been where we have all been or been close to. He has struggled and succeeded so he knows how to get back up on his feet and it seems that he will be able to do the same for all of us.
Terry Ryan (Prefers Democratic Party) 14,016 68.36%
Terry is just here, he has sidestepped so many important issues with votes to try to not “step on any toes” we need someone who is ready to step, stomp and hop on toes, not just trying to stay in office peacefully. I know some folks consider this being politically correct but we can scarcely afford that right now. We need someone brave enough to be the one vote the citizens need. Mr Ryan has a very long impressive list of endorsements by exactly the people we need to vote out of office, he did not miss one. He literally only has 2 endorsements that are not questionable. Which means he is also part of the “clique”, not a voice for the citizens.
