Seattle Times endorses King County Charter Amendment 1

Our campaign is pleased to have received the endorsement of The Seattle Times!

This morning, The Times published an editorial declaring that Charter Amendment 1 “makes sense” and “has merit.”

“The possible benefits outweigh the potential costs,” the board concluded.

“Almost without a doubt, moving King County races to even years will increase voter participation. But King County officials should not slide down the rabbit hole of other, more dubious election-reform measures or neglect town halls, debates and other community events that generate public interest in their campaigns and activities.”

“Voters should approve King County Charter Amendment 1.”
