Ballard Rejects Nickels

How'd We Vote?

Well, we like Nickels less than the rest of the city. While he managed to get 25.6% of the citywide vote, according to King County's preliminary web results, only 21% of Ballard voters picked Nickels. Actually, our district includes Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Greenwood and Belltown but close enough. Here's how our district voted by our rough calculations.

McGinn - 28%
Mallahan - 27%
Nickels - 21%

So now that he has conceded, who do you think should be our next mayor? And what should they do for Ballard? Here is our list.

  1. Synchronize traffic lights along Market Street from 8th to 24th.
  2. Stop or reduce development of multi-family dwellings (condos!).
  3. Fix the Missing Link.
What do you think?
