In Everett, the room awaits Reardon

In the basement of the Labor Temple in Everett, about 20 people stood around munching on potato chips, drinking soda and talking about Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon.

One man told congressional candidate Darcy Burner, who is seeking the 1st District seat in 2012, that he’s a longtime Reardon supporter.

“I’m hoping we win a number of elections,” Burner said. “I think it’s hard to tell what the turnout’s going to be.”

Burner didn’t want want to comment on Reardon being under investigation by the State Patrol for allegedly misusing public funds for travel.

House Rep. Roger Goodman, D-Kirkland, who is seeking the same congressional seat, said he’s confident Reardon will win.

“Aaron is going to do fine, particularly with all of the shenanigans on the other side.”

Reardon has said that he plans to be at the Labor Temple event, the gathering spot for Snohomish County Democrats, around 8.
