    This is a shame. There are so few minorities serving in Washington State, we need someone like you running. With all of the talk about diversity in Seattle, the fact of the matter is that the king-makers in Washington State keep pushing and backing the same carbon copy politicians. Did you know that of the 27 real leadership positions in Washington State that only 2 of those currently serving are minorities. The 25 others are all caucasian. Where is the equal representation?

    Seattle City Council (9 Reps, 1 minority (Harrell)
    King County Council (9 Reps, 1 minority (Gossett)

    Governor Gregoire, Mayor McGinn,KC Executive Constantine,US State Representatives Inslee,McDermott, Reichert, and Smith, US State Senators Murray and Cantwell.

    Shame on you Washington!
