Former WSU Cougar and Seattle Super Sonic Center James Donaldson has announced his candidacy for Mayor of Seattle. The 7 foot plus Donaldson has been running a physical therapy business in Mill Creek for almost 20 years. Current Mayor Greg Nickels has drawn fire for his handling of Seattle's recent snowfall. Nickels is finishing his second term.
Although we don't have a "Governator" like California, this state has elected politicians with sports backgrounds, Congressman Norm Dicks played linebacker for the Washington Huskies and the late John Cherberg was a former Husky football coach who served as Lieutenant Governor.
