Tidbits from the candidate

We often learn unexpected tidbits when talking with candidates for their endorsement interview. State Supreme Court Justice Susan Owens was in today and mentioned that she went to a concert Sunday by singer-songwriter Ben Harper at the Crocodile in Seattle. It was a benefit for Owens’ benchmate, Steve Gonzalez, who was appointed by Gov. Chris Gregoire in January and is running to retain his seat.

Turns out, Harper and Gonzalez are cousins; their mothers are sisters.

Owens also mentioned that she was one of the elected officials walking in the Seattle gay pride parade Saturday.

“I’ve never seen so many naked people on bicycles,” she said. She apparently has never been to the Fremont Solstice Parade.
