I support Lisa O’Toole for King County District Court Judge. Ms. O’Toole has practiced law for 27 years.
If you’ve had the chance to meet Andy Hill, you know how genuine a person he is. As our state senator, he’s been just as genuine in following through on the promises he made when he first ran four years ago.
The city should build on existing plastic-bag recycling efforts, instead of enacting an intrusive and ineffective bag ban that takes money from our wallets, hurts our local merchants and lowers Kirkland's tax revenue when people shop elsewhere.
I’m supporting Joan McBride for 48th District Legislature and here’s why.
We were surprised by Duane Illg's negative letter in the Oct. 24 Reporter.
Listening to all the rhetoric of the campaign season you would be led to believe every candidate relentlessly works across the political aisle and is the model of bipartisanship. Frankly, I doubt it.
I have spent 18 years on the Redmond City Council and during that time I have come to realize just how critical the relationship between state government and local government really is. Virtually all powers of cities in Washington are derived from the state legislature.
State Rep. Roger Goodman lied. He did, in fact, drive his children stoned and therefore, knowingly and repeatedly lied to the press and his constituents over the past couple of years.
Fat-free is healthy. But fact-free, like Duane Illg's letter about Joan McBride, is harmful to voters. Let's check Illg's claims about McBride, a 48th District Democrat running for State Representative.
I feel compelled to also submit a Letter to the Editor to share my thoughts about Sen. Andy Hill.
Are you asking, as I am, just who is behind the slick political ads trashing State Senate candidate Matt Isenhower? To date I have found five of these flyers in my snail mailbox in the past ten days. I checked the fine print of each return address. These ads are sent by the Good Government Leadership Council from a post office box in Centralia, Wash. Centralia?
The guest editorial, dated Oct. 8, 2014 written jointly by Larry Springer and Roger Goodman is so peculiar, I am honestly wondering if they actually wrote it themselves. Is it possible that someone on the Democrat Party staff or perhaps Matt Isenhowers’ campaign staff wrote it?
I have never written a letter in to a newspaper before, but I’m doing so now because I believe so strongly in Andy Hill, our first-term 45th District State Senator.
In a lavish display of hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness, California energy billionaire Tom Steyer and Adobe software founder Paul Brainerd, with several environmental special-interest groups, printed and mailed the biggest and fanciest political mailer I’ve ever seen.
Larry Springer has changed. Even when I have disagreed with him on policies, I have respected him as someone willing to work together with his colleagues in the community to do something positive. But then I saw this op-ed he apparently wrote with Roger Goodman.
Larry Springer has represented this area for a long time and I had the opportunity to work with the Kirkland City Council when I served as the chair of one of the Neighborhood Associations. As an elected official I respected his fairness and bipartisanship as a local elected official - until now.
I’ve been involved in education advocacy in public schools for the past 12 years. As the parent of a child with autism, I’ve worked closely with families and schools to help students with disabilities. As an advocate for children in our foster care system, I help some of our most at-risk students get the supports they need
We are blessed to be a rich nation with more material goods than most of the rest of the world. We also create more trash, garbage and waste than much of the world's people put together.
This mid-term election is important and voters in the 48th have an important decision to make.
In the race for 45th District Senator, the best decision for voters is to re-elect Andy Hill.
