Find out how the AM 770 KTTH talk show hosts would vote in November’s election.
Jenny Durkan or Cary Moon for Seattle Mayor?
Jason Rantz- Moon is a condescending extremist who bought her primary victory. Her homeless policy? Stop sweeps, keep people living on the streets while the city continues to throw tens of millions at a problem they have no plan or ability to fix, all while making our neighborhoods unsafe. Her transportation policy? It’s a meandering, ridiculous, embarrassing, ideological mess. On our business community? She has an odd hatred of the rich, even though she is a wealthy candidate self-financing her campaign.
Durkan is a moderate Democrat who is pretending to be a Progressive so she’s not out-flanked by Moon. She has a bunch of policies on all the issues that matter, but I don’t believe her positions are hers; I think they’ve been crafted by consultants to trick Seattle extremists to vote for her over Moon. This makes Durkan a phony and my fear is she’ll legislate like the extremist she’s pretending to be so that she may stay in power. I think she’s pro-business, so I hope that will shine through if elected, but her rhetoric is inorganic and ridiculous.
I don’t like either candidates, so neither get my vote.
Michael Medved- Jenny Durkan has the administrative experience and pragmatic temperament to make progress on some of the glaring problems that have worsened notably under the last two ideologically driven and disastrous mayors (McGinn and Murray). A third ‘M’ (Moon) would be a major mistake (two more ‘M’s).
Todd Herman- Jenny Durkan. She is slightly less likely to be toxic than Cary Moon. The City Council in Seattle has created chaos with insane policies. They are doing everything that you would possibly do to cause more heroin users and drug dealers to move here, businesses to leave and the middle class to disappear; they are making traffic worse, housing more expensive, jobs scarce, and politics both financially and philosophically corrupt. It will require some semblance of sanity to try to hold the city on the edge of this cliff lest it fall to ruin. Durkan won’t materially help anything, but she’s probably not crazy and may be able to hold off the collapse.
John Urquhart or Mitzi Johanknecht for King County Sheriff?
Jason Rantz- No reply.
Michael Medved- John Urquhart has been an acceptable incumbent and the highly negative, intensely personal campaign against him doesn’t deserve to succeed.
Todd Herman- Mitzi. I have admired John for years because he seemed to speak straight to issues and was a sea of calm in an ocean of rogue waves. Then we learned, through videos of his speeches, that the sheriff has two sets of policies: one for liberal groups and one for conservatives. One such issue is government-funded heroin dens. The sheriff has said they are a great idea and something he questions. It is my understanding that he has said he will treat these facilities as a de facto legalization of heroin; the sheriff contends he hasn’t said that. I am left to wonder what our current King County Sheriff will do about the explosion of heroin use and the influx of users if King County gets its heroin dens. Mitzi, on the other hand, has pledged to uphold the laws against heroin possession and sales; she had pledged to stand up to Dow Constantine and Dan Satterberg, both of whom want the government-funded heroin dens. Mitzi will enthusiastically work on creative solutions to the opioid problem. She has been a longtime officer, once outranked our current sheriff, has lead SWAT teams and works in gang intervention; she knows our streets and our people. This being King County, Mitzi is a progressive, but I believe she’s a cop first, and a leader and a concerned neighbor who will evenly enforce the laws.
