• Calling the two-term incumbent a strong ambassador for Seattle in Olympia, four state leaders endorsed city council member Jean Godden today: Senate majority leader Lisa Brown (D-3), Sen. Margarita Prentice (D-11), Sen. Maralyn Chase (D-32), and Rep. Roger Goodman (D-45).

King County Council member Joe McDermott, a former state senator from the 34th District, also endorsed Godden, saying, "“From budgets to neighborhoods, Jean is always our champion."

Getting the nod from liberals Goodman and Chase is a bit of a coup for Godden, whose opponent, SDOT manager Bobby Forch, is running as "the true progressive" in the race.

• Goodman, who's himself running for the US House seat being vacated by Jay Inslee (D-1), who's running for governor, nabbed another legislative endorsement of his own today: From state Rep. Bob Hasegawa (D-11), who said he would miss Goodman's "progressive voice in the legislature ... but we really need Roger Goodman in Congress now to promote our progressive values."

As we've noted, Goodman and his fellow congressional contender, Democratic state Sen. Steve Hobbs (D-44), have been racking up legislative endorsements while the third Democrat in the race, state Rep. Marko Liias (D-41), has been falling behind.

• Tomorrow afternoon, the city's ethics and elections commission will discuss whether to eliminate a rule requiring the city to publish the entire text of every ballot measure in the paper voters' pamphlet that goes out to every citizen. According to ethics commission director Wayne Barnett, getting rid of the rule would save about $12,000 per ballot measure---and save around 1.4 million pieces of paper. "I'm not sure how many people actually read the whole thing," Barnett says, to say nothing of "the expense and the environmental cost of using all that paper."

If the commission does eliminate the requirement, the pamphlet would still include the ballot title, an explanation of what the measure would do from the city attorney's office, statements for and against the measure, and information about how to get a full copy of the proposal online or by mail.

• The Seattle Times has a brief geographical breakdown of the pro- and anti-tunnel vote in last month's election. Not surprisingly, wealthier, more conservative areas of the city like Laurelhurst, View Ridge, and Madison Park, skewed strongly for the tunnel, while anti-tunnel sentiment was strongest in more liberal areas like Capitol Hill, South Park, and Greenwood.

• In preparation for a potential county parks levy in 2013, the King County parks department is doing a survey asking parks users where they want to see investments in the park system (trails, wading pools, beaches, park maintenance, etc.), whether they feel safe in county parks, and---dovetailing with a widely derided "Let's Do This King County" anti-smoking campaign---whether smoking should be banned in county parks.
