Letter to the Editor: Vote for Sen. Maralyn Chase

Thursday, October 25, 2018

To the Editor,

Our voters need a clearer picture of the record of Shoreline Deputy-Mayor Jesse Salomon compared to Sen Maralyn Chase’.

Recently you’ve probably received a mailing from a group calling itself “RealtorsPAC.” According to SAN’s report, their address is for an Olympia location that has a building under construction! That’s suspicious? This “hit piece” on Senator Chase was merely about a question she asked 16 years ago just after she was appointed by her district as representative. It reminds me of a typical Seinfeld episode which is always ABOUT NOTHING! So clearly, Realtors and developers are supporting Jesse Salomon. That makes sense after he voted for maximum upzones for nearly 6000 Shoreline households. And because he voted twice against protecting thousands of significant trees in those upzone areas.

The Public Disclosure website shows that he has taken a big donation from Monsanto! And why is Monsanto giving him money you might ask? Maybe because Sen Chase was the major sponsor of the Initiative 522 for Food Labeling on GMO’s? Do we really want a Senator who’s supported by Monsanto? I’d prefer someone who does not want to destroy “grass roots” and is FOR environmental quality. That’s Senator Chase.

Then review Salomon’s record on taxes. He voted 6 times to increase property taxes on Shoreline residents and, also for the sales tax proposals. Sen Chase stands against increasing property taxes and for reforming our state tax system to be fairer.

She stands up strongly for public schools and teachers.

Sen Chase is endorsed by dozens of fellow elected officials including AG Bob Ferguson and Rep Jayapal, and Sierra Club, WCV, King County Labor Council, WEA and is the NOMINEE for local, county and state Democratic party organizations. Salomon is not.

I strongly urge 32nd District voters to Vote for Sen Maralyn Chase.

Thank you for sharing this info Janet. I felt like I would simply not vote for either candidate since Salomon's dismissiveness of citizen concerns during the rezone meetings convinced me he was more in support of developers than the people who lived here in Shoreline. But the campaign against Chase is not good either. Perhaps we vote for the lesser of two evils but I will go with Chase this time around, based on the information you just shared.
