Move forward

I just saw the e-mail Ms. Gregoire put out asking for letters to the press trying to drum up public favor for another recount in our governor's race, as well as asking for money for it. I know many voters who are not in favor of another recount, especially a hand count. Even our auditor is on record saying there is more error in a hand count.

Neither do we wish to spend another month and possibly tax dollars for another recount.

I remember a basketball game where a victory meant going to State. The margin of victory was one point. The losing team was disappointed, but the coaches and team members accepted the defeat and moved on with their lives.

It's time for our state to move forward. The Capitol building is open, the legislators are preparing for the session, which begins on Jan. 10. The governor-elect has work to do before then. Let's give him the time to do it.
