Campaign signs

Democrats in Northeast Seattle came together Thursday for a nominating convention and candidate forum packed with 27 candidates. Increasing state revenue was the theme of the night.

SEATTLE — The doors of the Lake City Way Elks Lodge were plastered with campaign signs. As I walked in I was confronted by staffers from every campaign offering literature and stickers. There was even more, from at least 10 different candidates, waiting for me at my seat. The lodge, normally plain aside from the elk antlers at the front and back, was plastered with campaign signs.

Despite lackluster attendance at the local Democratic caucuses last Sunday,┬áthe 46th Legislative District Democrats sure didn’t disappoint on Thursday night.
