5. WA has socialist roots, even a CP, and not that it's the same thing, strong unionists.

Her solutions are great, especially the one to keep the transportation system growing and healthy. It's what the people want, and the libertarians/baggers have worked to defund along with privatization. It's hurt people and growth.

And Conlin was good to not raise a fuss and try to drag it out and deny her a seat. I didn't support her against Chopp, but I don't live in Seattle which is more liberal than most of the state. They lead the way.

Our co-operative citizens make life better for all of us here and I hope she will be able to fulfill some of the concerns she voiced in the earlier election. Council is the perfect venue for her.

There are historically many peeps here of Scandinavian descent and they are good guys. Ballard is known for its 'Swedes in the weeds.' And this area had many great socialist things in the past, and we need to get back to it.

Congratulations to the good people of SeaWa.
