EDITORIAL: “Snaky” in the ID

By Assunta Ng

The Year of the Snake sneaked into the ID with a lot of good omens. The weather forecast said it was going to be sunny for the New Year’s festival, but the sun hid the whole day. Those who had seen the sunny forecast came anyways. The ID was so packed that many restaurants had over 10 people in line waiting outside the restaurants. Light rain came at the end of the festival, around 4 p.m., but by then, who cared?

Normally, no politicians come to the ID’s New Year Festival, but the mayoral race is hot this year and three candidates showed up, including Mayor Mike McGinn, former City Councilmember Peter Steinbruek, and City Councilmember Bruce Harrell.

May I say to the elected officials, don’t just appear during election year, visit us every year. (end)
