Darcy Burner's Blog

Darcy Burner is running a tight race for the House seat in the 8th district against republican incumbent Dave Reichert.   The good news is the Darcy Brunner has a blog. What a great way to communicate with ones constituency.  Darcy's site is straight forward and informative.  This is democracy in action!

Her position  ...

The good news is that in responding to global warming, we have an opportunity to embrace a clean energy future that will have positive ramifications far beyond stabilizing climate change. Investing in clean energy and super efficient energy technologies will allow us to save money, create new industries and jobs, clean our environment, improve public health, and bolster our national security. I am very excited about the opportunities that clean energy will create right here in the 8th district. Our district is home to talented entrepreneurs who are developing new clean energy technologies, including next-generation wind technology, high intensity solar power, ocean wave power, smart power grids, and plug-in hybrid vehicles. When our nation makes a full-fledged commitment to clean energy, our region will be a major beneficiary.
I totally agree .  There is a review of the Republican incumbent's position here.  As you might expect he wasts time by doubting the science.  But whether science can predict the green house effect is no longer important ... there is ample evidance that it is happening now.  What we need are people in Washington who will support our "entrepreneurs who are developing new clean energy technologies" which will have the added benifit of weening us from Middle East oil.  That is the win-win path forward regardless of the unknowns. These politicians like Reichert who waste our tax dollars tring to discredit legitimate science need to be thrown out of office.

Apparently Darcy Burner didn't make her positions known on the NPAT - the vote smart people. It looks as if she has been given the survey.
At least her opponent (the incumbent) has a voting record. He hasn't done the  NPAT survey either.


Mark de LA says
It is pretty much the standard democrat mantra "tax the rich". It's the same SOS of class warfare.  But who is actually paying most of the taxes? Look here:


The deficit has been coming down due to Bush's tax-cutting policies which have stimulated the economy where today the NY stock exchange is setting records.
Don't tax us into a recession again!

Some press on her here
source: ... She's got zero political experience, unless you count a stint as president of her suburban community club. But somehow, Democrat Darcy Burner is waging a serious challenge to freshman Republican Rep. Dave Reichert.
... playing to the dislike Bush crowd, eh ?
Yeah and you'r just quoting the smear TV ads that Reichert has been running ... over and over again, nothing news worthy there.  These TV ads are about the worst i've seen .... that she can rebut their clamis does not prevent the GOP from shouting their distortions into our ears every night.  I thought that you yourself decried these kind of TV ads in [item 4664] ... also that you though it a good idea to "throw the bumbs out" ... that means incumbants ... that means not get people in there that necessarily have the kind of experience that keeps Washingtion going in the same direction.  I can't get any political consistency from your messages ... or is this just a rwg to you?

From my point of view, the Bush crowd just needs to be thrown out ... they have made enough mistakes. Darcy is part of that process.
NO, actually I quoted from the myway article, first paragraph.  I have no access to their TV ads she's in your district.  The question in my mind, now that you brought it up, is it true?  Does she have any political or leadership experience, any results that she can point to (besides the community club)? While my inclination is to applaud a novice flushgov.net I also worry about a complete set of novices flooding congress without any clue as to what to do when they get there. Surfing into congress on a wave of "anything but Bush" without a clear & public agenda isn't my idea of finding better people for the government.  See my 4150 & others in flushgov.net.

Darcy Burner has had no experience serving anyone in this district or anyone in this world. She only attended one homeowners association meeting and that was to get a picture taken for her campaign. If she can not even attend her own homeowners association meetings how can we expect her to show up and vote in congress. I also do not want someone in office who thinks the best thing she can do for her son is to be elected to congress so that she is so busy someone else will be taking care of her 3 year old.

I think its great another Women is empowered to run for Office. Reguardless if she has children. Maybe we could all get off our collective asses and take part in helping America. I volunteer at the High School. So put your foot in your mouth.
