Sound Bites: Memorable quotes from the 43rd L.D. Candidate Forum
Sound Bites: Memorable quotes from the 43rd L.D. Candidate Forum
Murray: "These are all incredible candidates. They're also lucky. I saw one newspaper call the candidates 'boyish' and 'sexy.' No one has ever called me sexy, and its been years since someone called me boyish."

b>Dodson: "I'm the candidate endorsed by more legislators than any other candidate. I have the skills, the passion and the knowledge to do it."

Kelley: "Last year alone, Washington state gave away $6.8 billion in private tax preferences."

Pedersen, on what must be done to solve Seattle's infamous transportation issues: "Make it easier, cheaper, and more convenient for people to use public transportation."

Pure, on her hopes for progress in civil rights: "Fairness when it comes to economic justice, racial profiling, and same-sex marriage."

Sherman, on the fact that Washington ranks 42nd in the nation in education funding: "Come on. Our values are better than that. We are here in the bluest district, in the bluest city, in the bluest part of the state. We've got to do better than that."

Street: "The U.S. has 5% of the world's population, and 25% of its prisoners. How does that match our vision of ourselves as a country?"
