So, let’s see if I can come up with something new to remind us of a gross action that Republican Senator Ericksen has taken, or blight he has brought upon our county, each of the remaining days until we vote in November to fire him.
Because I know this award goes a long way back, before I ever got to hear his slippery speaking at a candidate forum in Birch Bay, I will start with this annual award dedicated to Doug Ericksen by Cascadia Weekly:
“The Annual Doug Ericksen Award. Given State Senator Doug Ericksen’s unswerving fealty to misdeeds, years ago we established the Annual Doug Ericksen Award to be presented annually to Doug Ericksen. We can’t cover all of Doug’s capers for the year, so let’s focus on his double-dipping when he accepted a job with the Trump administration in Washington, D.C. while still holding his state senate seat. Doug maintained that he could do two jobs at once, despite his absenteeism on senate workdays and at numerous committee meetings. Reporters were eager to question Doug about this at a press conference he scheduled to discuss the very matter, but Doug wasn’t there. He was in Washington, D.C.”
