Paul Barrera ran for Ronald
Wastewater Commissioner
From Paul Barrera

On November 28, King County Elections certified the results of the Ronald Wastewater District election for Commissioner position 5, and Wes Brandon won.

I tacitly conceded by email that week, and congratulated Wes for becoming an elected commissioner.

I encourage more young citizens, especially millennials like myself, to run for public office. I spent $46, 30 hours, and made one public appearance to capture more than 40% of the vote. 

I spent my time and money on a website, campaign statements to King County and Snohomish County elections. I answered the the Vote411 questionnaire organized by the League of Women Voters. 

I correctly fulfilled my campaign finance disclosure obligations on the first try. 

Finally, I appeared at the Richmond Beach Community Association candidate forum, where I was noted for "locking... [Brandon] in a testy battle," and later complimented by the RBCA for my "insurgent" campaign.

I encourage more young leaders to take a stand for good judgment, transparency, and independence.

I respect the electoral process, and I accept the results wholeheartedly. Congratulations on your election, Commissioner Wesley Brandon.

I was disappointed in the results. I listened to your ideas about what was Ronald Wastewater needs in its decision making process by district commissioners, and I think you had some great ones! Better luck next time, should you run again in the future.
