Final Stretch --Rose Ehart in UP City Council Race

Some may remember Rose Ehart's last run two years ago at University Place city council. She took on the sitting mayor, and battled to within 19 votes of unseating him, and at one point was ahead by 190 votes in the tallies.

This time she is running for an empty seat, and her opponent is the ubiquitous Denise McCluskey, who last year ran a write-in campaign against 28th District Rep. Tami Green, and of course got crushed.

At the urging of Pierce County Republican string-puller Dick Muri, McCluskey filed for the position in the final few hours, with the stated purpose of keeping Rose from running unopposed. McCluskey ran for University Place city council once before against long-time incumbent (and Warren G. Magnuson Lifetime Achievement Award winner) Jean Brooks, and lost, even though Jean's poor health prevented her from campaigning much.

Each time, McCluskey has raised around $2500.00, even for the race against Green, where a serious bid would take many times that. Her signs reflect this: they are recycled with thick layers of sign material covering the two previous positions she has used them for.

Still, it seems to be one of those back-lash years, and even though Rose (also a past Maggie winner, and lately a member of the Washington State Democrats State E-Board) has raised nearly 10x as much as her opponent, the outcome is not a lock. She is planning one final mailer, and is pushing to raise the final $2000.00 to pay for the balance of the bulk mailing costs.

If you can spare a few bucks, or a couple of hours for sign-waving or phone banking, she would certainly like to hear from you. Her website is at www.RoseEhart.com and her email is electehart@gmail.com --
