Add another one to the list

Mayoral candidate. Also very tall.

For once an exploratory committee gives the green light! James Donaldson, small-business owner and former Sonic, has officially cast his hat into the ring for Seattle mayor. He’s been back and forth on this, initially aiming for the city council.

But today he makes it official, although without an official kick-off. Publicola has the press release, and it lays out Donaldson’s basic platform: audits for all city departments, make the city more business friendly, and freeze all (all!) utility increases (all of them!)… except for those to maintain service at current levels (all?).

With Donaldson in the race, a couple of situations have changed: 1) the McGinn/Nickels face-off is now a three-way (sorry Dan Savage and that Sigler guy), and 2) by the Bus’s count, there is not one single person of color currently running for Seattle City Council.
