The Mallahan for Mayor Campaign is honored to announce the endorsement of Dwight Pelz, the former Democratic State Senator and King County Councilmember from South Seattle, and current Chair of the State Democratic Party. Pelz emphasized Mallahan's progressive Democratic values, his commitment to rebuilding Seattle's economy, and his get-things-done leadership style as reasons for his support.Howie P.S.: Dominic Holden (SLOG), sounding a little desperate to discredit Pelz and to lower the net worth of his endorsement, has penned "Dwight Pelz: A Conservative Democrat." I'm confident that this is the first time Pelz has been tagged with that particular label. Even though I make no pretense of "objectivity" (whatever the hell that is) let the record reflect I was employed for a time by the organization Dwight helped to start (he was its first Executive Director), Washington Fair Share. This occurred some time ago, in the last part of the last century.
Pelz, a former community organizer, represented the 37th legislative district in the state senate for six years and served on the King County Council from 1997-2005, representing south Seattle. Pelz has been Chair of the State Democratic Party since January 2006.
