Who’d a thunk? A little boy adopted from Bulgaria by a priest and a nun becomes such a big topic of conversation in our local newspaper.

Called a “king maker” — maybe tongue and cheek, but you said it, not me. It is true, Martin is aspiring to great things, higher seats and a lifetime of politics. He may be learning his way as he goes, he may be having his conscious formed as he is introduced to different hot topics.

But at the end of the day, I believe Martin Moore will be an outstanding, ethical politician for South King County voters in the very near future. A force to be reckoned with. A man who is being formed and mentored by good people like Rep. Roger Freeman and Mark Miloscia.

He certainly has the tenacity, the energy and the smarts to do great things and make a difference. Some of us appreciate that he is willing to support “the man” or “woman” as the case may be, for what they stand for, not whether they have a “D” or an “R” behind their names.

Those days of voting party lines need to be behind us and the thought of voting just because of a party name needs to be evaluated.

The voter needs to educate themselves on the issues and decide what person they think will best fit the seat. What about common sense, conscious and the need to just do the right thing?

Let’s vote for the man or woman who will actually get the job done and do it morally and ethically. Go Martin! Continue to have your name plastered in a newspaper. After all, don’t they say: “any publicity is good publicity.”
