HeraldNet Posts old Pro-Sax Letters to the Web

HeraldNet - JEFF SAX : He balances ecology and our economy: "JEFF SAX
He balances ecology and our economy

I was amused by Bruce Barnbaum's broadside against Snohomish County Councilmember Jeff Sax ('Jeff Sax: His actions speak louder than words,' Feb. 22). Barnbaum complains that, 'Mr. Sax apparently believes that only humans count, and his definition of what 'counts' is apparently very limited, indeed.' "

This is the start of a letter from 2002 (after Sax had defeated Somers). It got picked up by my Google notice, and it appears that the Herald is posting it to the Web for the first time, with a 2006 copyright notice (is that legal since it was originally written in 2002?).

HeraldNet: Political donors switch support

HeraldNet: Political donors switch support: "Political donors switch support
Backers of losing Snohomish County Councilman Jeff Sax give nearly $9,000 to his winning rival, Dave Somers."

Which just goes to show that the developers will support whoever is in power.

The Seattle Times: Snohomish County News: Controversial councilman on his way out

The Seattle Times: Snohomish County News: Controversial councilman on his way out:
"Jeff Sax can still smile about the political stances and gaffes that may have cost him his job.
Yes, the departing Snohomish County councilman, who lost to former council Chairman Dave Somers in the November election, has worries. One is about his reputation, which he believes is tarnished after what many consider major political blunders."

The Seattle Times does a little retrospective as Sax leaves office, suggesting that he will still be around and
Whatever he does, don't expect Sax to disappear. There's bound to be a land-use policy or political issue somewhere that he and others like him think requires a change.

In the meantime, he'll take the opportunity to get reacquainted with a family life near the Machias area of Snohomish County that's out of the public spotlight, a position in which his two children are glad to see him.

When he's ready, he'll rear that red-topped head of his.

"People will then know that I lead an upstanding, God-fearing life," he said. "So that if I do return to public office, people will recognize that maybe they were wrong last time."

Or maybe we'll remember that we were right. . .
