  1. Question Authority says:

    The way the results are coming in the November election will broke into two distinct ideological positions.

    #1 Burien focused, crime reducing, business friendly with environmental stewardship, and the sole purpose of bettering Burien

    #2 Self serving, puppets of outside entities, disruptive, grandstanding, single focus Leftist/Socialist/SJW/Cupcake Coalition ideals, and most importantly nothing to do with actually running a City.

    Look at the current reality brought to you by the current #2 associated members of the Council. They have done enough damage already to this City, make sure with your vote it never happens again. Sincerely QA

        QA – I think that is a vast oversimplification that doesn’t represent either side well.

        • Question Authority says:

          Oh but wait, for #1 the list is immense and glowing and for #2 it’s much like the real #2 but more stinky.

      Maybe we can persuade “the Stranger” to come in and evaluate the candidates before the Nov Election.

      Rate: Thumb up 7 Thumb down 16

      • Question Authority says:

        Unfortunately the “Stranger” leans Left and would inherently favor who needs to lose.

    • Could we have less labeling and more about the positions of the candidates please. You obviously know something about those positions and how they differ, and that’s what would be helpful to share. Thanks.
