Fred Jarrett Loved By All: the King County Executive Race

Susan Hutchinson says she’ll hire him. Dow Constantine invites him to campaign events. Fred Jarrett’s no longer in the race for King County Exec, but he’s an important player.

Dow, Susan, and Not in Race.

Jarrett had a good platform back in the primary, but Constantine and Hutchinson won it. Going back to the research I did at that time, Constantine seems like more of a solid candidate with experience to get things done in a county that sometimes has trouble getting things done. I still have trouble getting comfortable with Susan Hutchinson’s record which is mostly as a TV anchor.

What’s new? Well, both oppose the latest crazy ballot initiative from crazy initiative-maker Tim Eyman. Publicola covers a press release that calls out past remarks by Susan Hutchinson to say that she’s much more conservative than she lets on. If you want to see more, this Monday the two candidates will face off in a debate on environmental issues sponsored by King County Green Choice.

Last week we looked at  the Mercer Island City Council Election. We’ll take a look at the School Board race and key initiatives as well before this election season is over.
