ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

The race is on for the “Unofficial Official Mayor of White Center” – a position that’s part April Fools spoof and part serious fun.

There are already five opponents running for the position – Donnie McDermott, Christine Spencer, Justin Cline, Brian Cooper and canine candidate Floyd Dog. Nominations will be accepted through Saturday, April 1.

The candidates are campaigning with serious promises like Cooper’s intentions to add murals to the neighborhood and Spencer’s desire to bring a needle exchange program to the area to reduce transmission of disease.

There are also more fanciful campaigns, like McDermott’s pledge to build a monorail from the Triangle Tavern to Taradise and create floating bubble cars for White Center residents. Cline says he will pave the streets with ice cream and replace traffic lights with pinball machines, returning “Rat City to the former glory it never had.”

It’s hard to get a word out of Floyd Dog – but is an active member of the community – and a regular participant of the White Center 5K.
