The elections this week were full of surprises and Republicans won races all over the place.
In blue Seattle, a Republican woman named Ann Davison was elected city attorney.
This is a city where police have been defunded and demoralized.
Ann Davison elected next Seattle city attorney
nn Davison was elected Seattle city attorney after capturing nearly 60% of the vote following an initial round of ballots counted on Nov. 2, and maintained her lead Nov. 3.
Davison leads with 58% of the vote. Challenger Nicole Thomas-Kennedy trails with 42% of the vote.
Davison will replace Pete Holmes.
Davison believes the City Attorney’s Office is not for setting policy or a “place for radical agenda.” It is a place to provide impartial advice to those elected to create policy and to maintain laws so there is public safety.
Nicole Thomas-Kennedy has been a public defender and is a self-described abolitionist who wanted to reimagine the City Attorney’s Office and how it prosecutes offenders.
Davison will lead the Office of the Seattle City Attorney, also known as the Law Department, for a four-year term. The department operates with more than 100 attorneys. It is the third largest public law office in the state and one of the largest in the city.
This is stunning news. Democrats have got to be terrified.
The political landscape is changing in front of us.
