Keep Messner off the general election ballot | Letter to the Editor

I was curious to find out who Lynda Messner is since she is running as a Democrat in the 31st Legislative District race. What I found makes me question the reason for her running and her purported Democrat status.

I was curious to find out who Lynda Messner is since she is running as a Democrat in the 31st Legislative District race. What I found makes me question the reason for her running and her purported Democrat status.

According to the July 16, 2014, News Tribune, “Lynda Messner, previously known as Lynda Dabson, has challenged Barack Obama’s American citizenship, called for his impeachment and expressed other views that make her anything but an authentic Democrat.”

In the May 16, 2014, Olympian, Brian Gunn, one of the leaders of the 31st District Democrats, said he didn’t recognize Messner’s name.

The May 21, 2014, News Tribune reported, “Auburn Republican Roach says she didn’t sign Messner up for a run but acknowledged she knows someone who did and has thanked the unnamed person, whom she described as a labor Democrat. Roach said she has never met Messner, although the configuration of the race works out in her favor. ‘Everybody that was supporting me knew that it would be better to have one Democrat in the race,’ Roach said.”

A check of the Washington Public Disclosure Commission records shows zero campaign contributions for Ms. Messner but she has a plethora of signs around the district, a lot of them placed next to Cathy Dahlquist’s signs but none next to Pam Roach’s signs.

This raises the issue as to who is paying for her campaign literature and signs and what is her true reason for running. The May 27, 2014, Bellingham Herald stated, “Citizens of the 31st – which includes Bonney Lake, Sumner, Enumclaw and much of Auburn – are being treated to a certified political dirty trick.”

I wholeheartedly agree with the News Tribune of July 16, 2014, when it stated, “It’s important to keep Messner off the November ballot.”
