ELECTION: Sonntag errs in endorsing Kelley

Brian Sonntag was a great auditor, and I voted for him several times. But I can’t believe he is endorsing Troy Kelley to replace him.

Kelley’s voting record shows he is a partisan player who cares not what the people who put him into office want or need. He answers only to the lobbyists and party leaders.

I have e-mailed his office many times and never received a single response, not even a form letter. Kelley never represented the people of the 28th District during his time in Olympia, and he won’t represent the people of Washington.
