  1. One of the persons running for Snohomish Co. Auditor is Robert Sutherland. Sutherland is running on a platform of false claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. He wants to do away with our mail in ballots and increase “transparency”. I do not want Sutherland or his followers going into our elections offices and looking at MY ballot which, I believe, is the intent behind his version of “transparency”. Sutherland has alleged fraud where there is none and has been lying about our elections for 3+ years. Sutherland has threatened that “win or lose”, he will either “perform or call for a comprehensive audit of the 2023 Snohomish County Auditor’s race…to make sure there is no wrongdoing”. This comes from an article in the WA State Standard (an independent, non-profit news organization) and also reported in the Edmonds Beacon in May. If allowed, I can provide a link to the WA State Standard reporting. We have 2 other choices for Auditor. Please vote for one of them.
