Can you have safety and prosperity and civilization without law and order? LOL no.
“Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes conceded on Friday, as he fell further behind his two primary opponents in an election that will bring an end to his 12 years in office.
The result will leave Seattle with a clear-cut choice in November between a law-and-order candidate and an abolitionist who wants to halt most misdemeanor prosecutions.
“After two decades of public service to Seattle — the last 12 as your City Attorney — it’s time to acknowledge that my opponents will be advancing to the general election,” Holmes said in a prepared statement. “While defeat is difficult to accept, it’s inconsequential compared to the collective pain we’ve suffered as a City throughout this pandemic.”
Holmes was in third place after Friday’s vote tallies, with 31% of the vote. He trailed challengers Nicole Thomas-Kennedy, who had 35%, and Ann Davison, who had 33%. …”
Things are getting interesting in Seattle.
Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes lost his race. He is the “progressive prosecutor” who was featured in the Seattle is Dying documentary. He was the moderate in the race.
In November, Seattle voters will have to choose between Ann Davison who is running as a Republican or Nicole Thomas-Kennedy who is a police abolitionist. She came in first place.
