CHS Pics | Faces from the District 3 campaign kickoffs

It is early, so very early in the race for District 3. The primary won’t be held until August and we won’t even know the final roster fo candidates for months. But the race is taking shape. It is most definitely not a two candidate show — meet Ami Nguyen, a public defender dedicated to representing all the people of District 3, not just Capitol Hill — but two of the strongest contenders — incumbent Kshama Sawant and challengers Logan Bowers —  held their campaign launches last week. CHS stopped through to see who showed up and ask why they support the candidates. Click through the galleries to see their answers.

Kshama Sawant — Re-election Kickoff Party — Sunday, March 10th — Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute

 

Logan Bowers — Logan for Seattle Campaign Kickoff — Thursday, March 7th — Rhein Haus

Also relevant: Kshama Sawant’s campaign kickoff had close to 200 people — how many did Logan’s?

There weren’t close to 200 people in that room. And how many of them were actual D3 constituents? Jean Swanson can’t vote for Kshama. Neither can Calvin’s many siblings in attendance.

It was a typical Sawant production, staged right down to the wall to wall mirrors behind her, to look like she’s the leader of some mass ‘movement.’

She’s all ‘Socialist Alternative’ branded hoodies and no cattle.

Say what you will about Sawant (and I agree there’s reason to be skeptical of personality-driven movement orgs like SA) but unlike every other councilmember save one, she did stand her ground on the head tax when it became politically risky to do so — and then Amazon promptly proved her right! That covers a multitude of sins, in my view, though I’m open to hearing what Sawant’s challengers bring to the table.
