An email from FUSE http://www.fusewashington.org/ recommends:
This year features another contest between a pro-environmental candidate and a conservative activist. Along with our friends at Washington Conservation Voters, we’re supporting Eric Nelson for the King Conservation District Board of Supervisors.
Eric is a third generation farmer and the former Agriculture Program Manager for King County. He now runs a dairy farm in Woodinville and helps farmers produce food in an environmentally sound way.
This election is also special because of its option to vote online. It’s a two-step process, and you can’t wait until the last minute. To make this election as simple as possible, we’ve set up step-by-step directions on our website. Please vote for Eric Nelson TODAY.
