This is the local politician I got drafted into banner-carrying for in the parade Saturday:
His name is Vincent “Vince” Buys, a Republican member of the Washington State House from the 42nd district.
And yes, he happens to be my landlord. But that doesn’t mean he automatically gets my endorsement.
I never donate money to politicians and endorsements are rare. In fact, for some time, your humble diarist seriously considered running against him.
