Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Ross Hunter For King County Executive
Weâ€™d like to offer a â€œmay the best person winâ€ welcome to Ross Hunter, candidate for King County Executive, our latest Advertiser.
He stopped by our Farmers Market booth in Burien recently for a get-to-know chat.
â€œIâ€™m an agent for change,â€ said Ross, who is in his fourth term in the Washington State House of Representatives, and worked at Microsoft for 17 years.
â€œI have the skills to make things happen.â€
We asked Ross to talk about former Executive Ron Sims, namely the thing Sims did best while in office, and that which he did not do so well.
â€œYouâ€™d have to include the council in on my answer,â€ Ross responded. â€œThey really work together. Iâ€™d say that they put us on the map environmentally in a positive way.
â€œBut over the years the executive and council showed a lack of attention to financial reality.â€
We asked what experience not commonly known about him would suggest he is ready to run the stateâ€™s largest county.
â€œNot many people know this, but I spend time now and again helping Habitat for Humanity,â€ he said, referring to the group that helps build houses for those who otherwise might not be able to afford one.
â€œI like to frame. If I can swing a big hammer, Iâ€™m happy.â€
A hint of the style of a Hunter Administration?
â€œNo,â€ Ross said with a laugh. â€œItâ€™s just how I build homes for those who need them!â€
Primary Election day is August 18th. The two candidates with the most votes advance to the General Election in November.
