Poor Rowan Hinds! Still bracing from his perceived loss of his favorite road, the Southeast Bypass. Rowan, you need to fully disclose who you shill for – your buddies Skip Rowley, Judd Kirk and the rest of the King County Republican Central Committee – all of whom want to spend taxpayer money for private benefit. Who will conduct your survey? Who will pay for it? How unbiased will it be? We’ve had a decade of monthly surveys (at council meetings) and surveys every two years (called elections).
