U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke will be featured at Dow Constantine fundraiser

And it’s happening right away, on Saturday at a home on Mercer Island.

Dow Constantine‘s former primary foes, Democrats state Rep. Ross Hunter and state Sen. Fred Jarrett, also will be featured guests.

Recent polling shows Constantine is trailing Susan Hutchison by about 4 percentage points, so the Dems are pulling together.

I think both of the finalists should be asked the key question: If it snows while you are county executive, would you authorize Metro Transit to use salt-laced sand to melt the ice-covered roadways or would you implement a plastic bag tax to raise more money to pay for a more environmentally friendly method to get rid of the snow, such as prayer?

(Hint: Greg Nickels gave the wrong answer.)

Here’s what I got from Dow’s campaign:

You are cordially invited for an evening reception in support of Dow Constantine, our next King County Executive.

Co-hosted by State Senator Fred Jarrett & State Representative Ross Hunter with honored guest former King County Executive and Former Governor Gary Locke.

Saturday, September 12th, 5:30pm-7pm
The Home of Joe and Judy Schocken
(I deleted the street address — Joe)
Mercer Island
