It is often said (by right-thinking people, that is) that the desire to hold elected office should be the chief disqualification for holding elected office.  With the advent of King County's new Accu-Vote ballot, write-in voting has never been easier.  As voting in a representative democracy is largely an exercise in self-expression, write-in votes tend to be more aesthetic than pragmatic, ranging from Kantian paragons to Kafkaesque parodies.  Even with ostensibly serious write-in campaigns, hope of efficacy is almost always quixotic.  This campaign is no different.

Dave SherbrookeDave Sherbrooke is a resident of Bellevue, Washington, and is therefore (probably) eligible to hold elected office in the following constituencies:

Why Sherbie?

Dave is honest, funny, wise beyond his years, and wants absolutely nothing to do with holding elected office.  We therefore urge you to write-in "Dave Sherbrooke" for every position for which he is eligible.

Candidate's Statement:

"Hello!  Are you looking for the house for sale?  You want the place two doors down...what?  Oh no, it's you...  And him, too?  I thought you'd gone.  Look, what do you want with me?  You still owe me a paper, you know.  Okay, you don't have to write it, just state your business.  What are you doing with that camera?  No, I can't say that I miss you exactly; you two aren't the only smart-alecks to darken my door in fifteen years, you know.  Have either of you got a real job yet?  Didn't think so.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to finish this hedge, so leave before I call the cops.  Come back when you've managed to make a difference in the world."
DAVE SHERBROOKE:  For the Little Guy... all of us.
