Fwd: Far from Over

Can you imagine an unqualified right-wing Republican running King County - one of the most progressive counties in the nation?

If your answer is no - then we need your help today!

On Friday a new poll was released showing Susan Hutchison with a slight lead over Dow in the King County Executive Race: 47%-43%.   There is no doubt her widespread name recognition as a former TV personality is responsible.

Surprised?  Well don't be: we faced the same challenge in primary polling - too many Democrats and progressive voters indicated support for Hutchison because of her celebrity status. 

We won over these voters in the primary because we educated them on Hutchison's true beliefs and lack of substance.  We can do so once again--but we need your help today.  Please make a donation now.
Hutchison wants us to elect her to the second most powerful office in the state, with responsibility for nearly two million residents, a $5 billion budget and more than 13,000 employees.  King County runs Metro transit, the criminal justice system, the health department, waste disposal, and elections.

Yet she has no experience to prepare her. No experience in making major policy decisions or managing a large, complex organization.

Despite months of campaigning, she has no plan for balancing King County's budget, no plan for improving our region's transportation system, no plan for protecting our vanishing green spaces, or dealing with the challenges posed by climate change.

When asked what she will do as Executive she offers empty sound bites and can go no further.

With the endorsements of all of our major primary rivals, and the support of leaders across the county, we are in a great position to win. But we need to raise another $400,000 to make sure the voters understand the dramatic choice before them - about values, about ability, about our future.

Please support Dow today with a donation of $25, $50 or $100.
