I got to know Dow Constantine years ago, when he first came to the legislature. Even then he stood out as someone with real leadership skills and a progressive vision for moving this region forward. You could see that he had the whole package: talent, charisma, smarts, strong Democratic values and an ability to bring people together to get the hard work done.Howie P.S.: To be honest, what sticks in my mind about Ed Murray is that when Michelle Obama came to Seattle for a fundraiser in July, 2007 Murray was the only elected officisl I can remember seeing in attendance.
For all of these reasons, I endorsed Dow in the race to become the next Executive. He has the vision to lead King County through difficult times, and I look forward to working with Executive Constantine to advance a progressive agenda over the next four years.
