ELECTION: Jeannie Darneille will work hard for us

Ever since we moved to Tacoma some years ago, we’ve watched Jeannie Darneille in the community and have been so impressed with what we’ve seen. She’s always been somebody who rolls up her sleeves and does the work – like for the band boosters at Stadium, the PTA at Mason Middle School, in Rotary and in the Chamber of Commerce.

Darneille’s deeply involved in her church, and before she was elected to the Legislature, she volunteered for committees and task forces with the City of Tacoma. She has also spent time as a Big Sister, working one-on-one with a young woman who needed a role model, and put in endless hours on breast cancer programs.

She is the kind of person you can always count on when things need to be done in the community. I’ve enjoyed watching her and working with her over the years, and that’s why I’m voting for her for state Senate. She will do the hard work ahead and ask, what’s next?

    Yes and she was the prime sponsor of a HB 2357 to increase sales taxes without any voter approval.

    Tacoma had no problem raising the sales tax for mental health with no plans as to where it goes other than the General Fund.

    She may be nice but she has no concept of living withing ones means politically.

  2. tree_guy says:

    Jeannie I’ve read your letter. I think voters would be wise to dismiss your endorsement and vote for anybody else. Ms. Darneille is a big tax and spender and was at least partially responsible for the budget deficits of the last few years. She is definitely not working hard FOR us.

  3. BigSwingingRichard says:

    Darnielle is also a proponent for a state income tax. Did she think the voters would forget this? A vote for Darnielle moves us one step closer to having a state income tax.

  4. PumainTacoma says:

    Get rid of Darnielle. My dog can budget treats and money better than she can….

  5. sandblower says:

    Here they are again!

  6. Pecksbadboy says:

    Jeannie Mitchell,you enjoyed watching her suck off the teats of a lifetime of civil service.

  7. philichi says:

    Probably better to have a nice lady like Darnielle doing something that doesn’t involve voting and spending large sums of money. Our state is now broke. Perhaps she should be working in a petting zoo.

  8. sandblower says:

    We are only temporarily “broke”. There are resources just waiting to be tapped.

  9. tommy98466 says:

    Democrats are not FRIENDS of the people. They only work for themselves. To line their pockets and work towards a one party rule. Pathetic.

  10. philichi says:

    Sandblower: you say that we are temporary broke. We just need to tap resources. Others say that we have a budget that depends on a 4% growth rate. We will probably grow at 2% Does Darneille understand what to do with this sort of problem. State pensions will go on underfunded. State employee salaries will need to be cut. Will Darneille be able to handle this?

  11. blakeshouse says:

    She will do just as her union handlers tell her to. No matter what.
