Last month we ran an essay by Mellina White Cusack, a mixed-race queer woman who happens to be a libertarian-leaning conservative. In blue blue Seattle, she wrote, people react to her political beliefs “as if I am betraying my own identity.”
Now Mellina is writing again — in her brand new blog.
“I started The Seattle Conservative to create a platform for those who believe fiscal responsibility and free markets are the first steps to solving Seattle’s modern day challenges,” she wrote us. “I want to be a voice of positive solutions, rather than demoralizing rhetoric.”
Thanks for adding your ideas to the mix, Mellina. Stay cool out there, all. We’ll see you all tomorrow. — The Evergrey
