Listening to my free Pandora account, I heard yet another negative ad from candidate Ingrid Anderson. Instead of tuning it out or turning down the volume, I listened to who paid for the ad, and I had an “ah-ha!” moment. Cue that little lightbulb above my head. It’s clear that Anderson was hand-picked by groups that Senator Mark Mullet refuses to follow blindly.
Because Sen. Mullet is an independent thinker, he has a target on him by the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.
If you want someone representing you in Olympia who will be in lockstep with liberal groups and Gov. Inslee, please vote for Ingrid Anderson. If you are okay with someone who has sold their vote for fundraising and ads and owes their seat in the state senate to left-wing groups that want to lock up the agenda in Olympia, Anderson is clearly your candidate. You don’t need experience if you’re simply voting the way someone tells you to vote.
If you value independent thinking and want someone representing you in the state senate that is beholden only to voters, support Senator Mullet. If you prefer someone who refuses to write a blank check for the agenda laid out by unelected political groups, support Senator Mullet. My preference is someone who listens to his district, votes his conscience and makes decisions based on what is best for his constituents instead of special interests.
