Election results at 8pm tonight.
550 people voting in uncontested City of Yelm positions for Mayor and City Council in a city of over 5,500 do not constitute a mandate!
Nor for the open City Council seat in which two new candidates are vying!
And, for once, NVN Editor /Publisher Graves & I agree in his Op-Ed,
“Sadly, in some of the uncontested local races, some of the candidates didnt feel the need to submit a paragraph about themselves.
Thats one of the many reasons I dont like uncontested races.
Neither Yelm City Councilman Bob Isom nor Rainier City Councilman Rick Succow submitted statements for the voters guide.
Why should they bother? Theyre sure wins.”
Four more years of a contentious & contemptuous Mayor, Mayor Pro-tem and City Council lie straight ahead!
