WASHAM: Most voters still lack awareness

I disagree with your comment that there is more voter awareness of Dale Washam today compared to when he was elected in 2008 (editorial, 7-9).

Last year, I visited several of my neighbors in a fairly affluent North End area of Tacoma, and others, with the petition to recall him. The vast majority of those contacted had no knowledge of who or what Washam was about. This after many stories in the media about him, mainly in The News Tribune.

Unfortunately, it is evident to me that a majority of the general public doesn’t pay much attention to politics or much of anything else by reading, listening or watching the media, except that which might be in their own spherical world of existence.

    Or we are aware and don’t appreciate the bullying tactics by the prosecutor to tell another elected official what to do and when to do it. From outsiders looking in including Seattle (well educated people), the prosecutor seems like he has a bone to pick and the Tribune is the principal helping to get back at the kid ratting on the cheating from past years.

    A lot of Hyperbole.
