Chris Gregoire has earned my vote this Fall. She has held the line on the State budget in the face of raging pressures to expand services. There have been few if any bureaucratic screw-ups that cost the State taxes and returned nothing. If we cannot re-elect a politician who is competent and honest then I have little hope for the future of democracy.
Rossi seems to have been stored on ice for the last four years by the land developers' association. They have been chaffing at the onus of having to pay for the extension of services to their dreams of sprawl. He almost won last election, but shouldn't come anywhere nearly as close this time.
