Howie P.S.: Here's a good chance to make a side-by-comparison. I've made mine!
The primaries are right around the corner. Today incumbent mayor, Greg Nickels, joins us followed by mayoral candidate Joe Mallahan. Nickels has been accused of being out of touch with voter priorities. For instance, some are questioning the recent $40,000 bonus given to the chief of City Light. He'll discuss this and other issues including the ongoing construction and the light rail, slated to open on July 18. Mallahan has worked in business, not politics, but he believes his "get it done attitude" can improve Seattle. What is his campaign platform?
