Letter to the Editor: Maralyn Chase has a long history of consistency in her campaign information and voting record

Monday, October 29, 2018

To the Editor:

I received yet another mailing from the Jesse Salomon campaign yesterday. This is the 6th mailing I have received in just the last week.

These mailings say that Jesse will cut property taxes; that he represents the interests of the people; and that Maralyn Chase is a corrupt politician who voted against transparency in government. He says this with the proverbial “straight face” while standing next to and being endorsed by 2 other local politicians who voted EXACTLY the same way Maralyn Chase did on that issue. Does he not see the hypocrisy in that? Jesse was one of the Shoreline City Council members who voted to take over Ronald Wastewater District, and Maralyn was the ONLY state level representative to call that out. Who’s the corrupt politician again?

Does he not see the “liar, liar, pants on fire” sign on his back when he says “I am going to cut your property taxes,” when his voting record on city council shows that he has voted 6 times to do just the opposite? Does he think our voters are too stupid to vote based on what he has done, not on what he says? Does he think that we are too stupid to remember how consistently Maralyn has fought for us?

Just check into Jesse’s voting record on city council. You will find that he is consistent as well. If the people want it; he votes against it. If the people don’t want it; he votes for it. He is consistently fighting against us.

Things that we can say about Maralyn that we cannot say about Jesse: she isn’t sending out negative mailers to the voters; she has a long record of consistency in her campaign information and her voting record, and she has a long history of working on the issues that are important to the voters in this district, not those of Monsanto, Chevron, or the supporters of charter schools.
