Echo-Lake-area resident plans to oppose Shoreline Councilman Salomon

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Echo-Lake-area resident Lorn Richey has announced his intention to run for the Shoreline City Council position now held by Jesse Salomon.

Richey said Wednesday that he is concerned about Council actions on rezones near the planned light-rail station and how the rezones and other council actions will affect Shoreline residents.

He registered with the State Public Disclosure Commission this week. Registration with the PDC allows candidates to raise and spend money for the coming election. Candidates file for ballot positions May 11-13.

Any position with three or more candidates appears on the Aug. 4 primary ballot, with the top two vote getters advancing to the Nov. 4 general-election ballot. Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the November ballot.

Outstanding! This is the kind of change Shoreline has been waiting for.

I am very impressed with Lorn Richey! He is seeking facts and listening to the community. He cares about the Little Guy. I believe Lorn will truly represent the people on the Shoreline City Council!

The citizens of Shoreline are now offered the opportunity to evaluate their personal goals and align them with the overarching needs of our city, state and country. I appreciate that Mr. Richey has been willing to offer us an alternative to consider. This way, we can make sure the citizens are involved and engaged. Never again should less than 6000 votes to elect a city council person. That City Council Member represents over 50,000 people. We have seen the effect of the flawed system. A City Council who is dismissive and decidedly unengaged with the people they are supposed to represent. CHANGE is needed!

Only 8 of the of 53 current contributions to Jesse Salomon's campaign are from Shoreline citizens, the majority are from Seattle residents. 1 of the 8 Shoreline contributions came from his wife.

Before demonizing Mr. Salomon, take a close look at the voting records of his cohorts.This entire council is the puppet of the Association of Washington Cities. This council listens to money, not the public.

Salomon was the deciding vote on the rezone. He knowingly on voluntarily cast the deciding vote for destroying our neighborhoods. He decided to partner with the pro-development trio of Winstead, Hall, and McGlashan.
Nobody is demonizing him, he did that to himself when he cast his vote.

You are singling him out. Eggen and McConnell are no better. They never voted against the 3 amigos when it made a difference. It's 7 amigos. Get it?

You should have seen McConnell's behavior at one of the overflow plancom meetings. She was overheard saying, "yeah, like I want to be here on a Thursday night", while rolling her eyes and having a laugh. Exchanging encouraging words with former planning commissioner Michelle Wagner after she publicly shamed dwellers of single family homes in ths subarea. I honestly don't think she can be trusted, despite her vote on mar. 16. Who's to say that the whole vote wasn't orchestrated amongst the seven to give the facade that we were being listened to?

Nobody is singling Salomon out. WHEN IT COUNTED, WHEN IT MADE A DIFFERENCE, Salomon voted with the pro-developer trio. Eggen and McConnell voted NO, against the rezone.

Thank you Lorn Richey for running!
