    Are mad because the Dems don't campaing in your area? Or are you mad because once they get into office they don't do anything for your district?  The second I understand, but the first seems a bit petty.  No offense, but if they believe (if perhaps mistakenly) that they can better spend their resources elswhere, shouldn't they?  

    When all else fails...panic

    •  They're both tied together (none)
      The state-wide Dem candidates don't spend enough time nor pay us enough attention.  And I don't mean just my county.  I mean virtually all the rural areas.  Again, without our votes, they have no chance to win.  King County may be the biggest county in the state but it can't do it alone.

      Granted, it's probably particularly galling to me that they ignore us so much when we're so close.  Aberdeen, the biggest town in my county, is only 50 minutes away from the State Capital.  And it's a beautiful drive, too.  

      Also, they tend to not discuss issues with us as my tale about the banning beach-driving issue illustrates.  I can only say that I'm thankful for my strong coastal caucus of legistors or this area would be even more ignored.  

      I fail to see how anyone can pretend to have an answer to a community that they are unfamiliar with.  Rural issues are very different than urban issues and require different solutions.  

      <<No offense, but if they believe (if perhaps mistakenly) that they can better spend their resources elswhere, shouldn't they?  >>

      And if they show such poor judgement in this area, why should I trust their judgement in other areas  and continue to support them.
