Two thoughtful and informative articles on local races:
– “Challengers in rural 2nd Legislative District seek to unseat Republicans”
By Melissa Santos, The Tacoma News Tribune.
– “Decision time in state rep races”
From The Dispatch of South Pierce County.
This letter in The Olympian is important to note, as Wilcox also refused to debate his opponent.
Do we want someone who has such disregard for his constituents to represent us?
– “Wilcox the only candidate who didnt attend forum”
” A recent Yelm candidate forum drew Hunt, Hartman, Nielson, but no Wilcox.
There was an enormous chance to meet with voters recently in Yelm, at a candidate forum sponsored by the True Grass Roots organization. It drew about 60 engaged voters who wanted to hear about the candidates and their positions on property rights and taxes. Being from the 2nd District I felt it very important that the candidates show up and make their ideas known. Hopefully when people cast their votes in the next couple weeks, they will take a look at who showed up and who tried to hide.”
