How to Alter Elections Without Really Trying – Or Voting

Creative Commons
Didya know that Patty Murray is running for three offices this year: U.S. senator, prez and veep – as an incumbent? That Mike Kreidler is eying both the gov’s mansion and the insurance commish office – at the same time? (Presumably, Kreidler’s gubernatorial incumbency may come as a shock to The Jayster. You never know.) And while Commissioner Wes Cormier isn’t even on the “2016 offices open for election” radar, Commissioner Frank Gordon is running for re-election in District 1 and 2?

 

This and much more can be found on the Grays Harbor County Auditor’s web site*. Check the link here.

Oh yeah. It’s obviously been a busy term for Brian Blake in the 19th LD. Poor guy’s been holding down not one but two incumbencies according to the web site. Ditto Steve Tharinger in the 24th.

I’m impressed.

Yea, verily. Either someone’s been nipping at the New Year’s sherry, or there’s a major hitch in the get-along somewheres.

Remember, peeps. This here’s your tax dollars at work. Doesn’t that just make ya feel all warm and snuggly and confident? Or that these people actually know what they’re doing?

*To be fair, the county gets its data from the Secretary of State’s Office. Just sayin’.
