Listen to today's archived episode of "The Conversation" with Ross Reynolds where my opponent and I lay out our different visions of the future of King County (I think one candidate did a better job laying out his vision; but you judge for yourself). Again, my challenger stated that the Alaska Way viaduct, in its current manifestation, "may be the best this generation can do". I don't agree. This is not the best our generation can do. We do not have the best rapid transit system we can have and deserve. We do not have the best waterfront and downtown we can have and deserve. We do not have the best County Council we can have. We can have better leadership. We deserve better leadership. With your help we WILL have a better King County. Seattle is not merely limping along as Candidate Phillips might have us believe. Working closely with our neighbors has shown me that we are a vibrant community, very much alive and supremely capable. We can all be thankful that we live in such a great city. I think the best way to honor our neighborhoods and those who have made King County what it is today is to always act towards creating an ideal future for King County.
