This is the official line up for the November Pullman City Council elections from the Vote Washington web site:
City of Pullman; Ward 1 Pos. 7
BILL PAUL, Incumbent.
JOSHUA COKE, Windows 2000 Administrator with WSU Student Computing Services. PARD affiliation unknown at this time, but suspected.
City of Pullman; Ward 2 Pos. 2
C.B. (BARNEY) WALDROP, Incumbent.
JOANNE SELLEN, Instructional Designer at the WSU Intensive American Language Center and another potential PARD candidate, was disqualified for filing in the wrong ward.
City of Pullman; Ward 2 Pos. 1
NO CANDIDATES FILED
I think Al Sorensen and Gary V. Johnson filed for this ward. Gary Johnson, a retired elementary school teacher, was disqualified for filing in the wrong ward. I'm not sure what Al's status is at this time.
City of Pullman; Ward 3 Pos. 5
ANN COX HEATH, Incumbent
DONALD HEIL, Retired WSU Architecture professor, Member of the Board of Directors, Pullman Civic Trust and Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. PARD affiliation unknown at this time, but suspected due to background.
JUDY KRUEGER, Investigator with the WSU Center for Human Rights and active PARD member.
Luckily this will not be the Armageddon I had feared it might be. There is at least one pro-growth person in each race, and two of those are unopposed, but Ann Heath and Bill Paul are going to need our support.
I will keep exposing PARD's tactics early and often. As one reader says: "They are running on one agenda, to bring Pullman back in to the dark ages and back in line with WSU's thinking."
