We publish our endorsements in Tacoma City Council primary races. Preview will be published in editorial page blog at 11 p.m.
Emotions are running high and lawmakers are calling for a special sessioin following the murder of Zina Linnick, but that’s not the best atmosphere for producing effective sex-offender legislation. The governor is right: Take the time for a review of sex-offender sentencing and notifications, and consider recommendations, if any, in regular session.
UPDATE: The sex offender editorial is on hold. The Tacoma City Council endorsement editorial is running longer than expected, leaving room for only a short editorial. We’ll run our endorsement in the single Bethel School Board race that will be on the Aug. 21 primary ballot.
