Shoreline City Councilwoman Doris McConnell announced Friday that she would run for re-election.

McConnell said she would register in a few days with the State Public Disclosure Commission, a step that will allow her to raise and spend money for the August 16 primary and November 8 general election.

Candidates file for ballot positions June 6-10.

McConnell is one of three Shoreline Council members whose terms expire this year. Councilman Chris Eggen announced his candidacy for re-election March 9. Councilman Terry Scott announced March 11 that he would not seek a second term.

McConnell said that she was late reaching her decision because she had been busy with Council business and with community and family commitments.

No challengers have announced their intentions to run against either McConnell or Eggen.

Former Shoreline Planning commissioner Robin McClelland and attorney Jesse Salomon have announced candidacies for the Scott seat.

Positions with three or more candidates appear on the August primary ballot. Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the November ballot.

McConnell was first elected in 2007, when she defeated former Councilwoman Maggie Fimia.
