All three Shoreline City Council seats on the November ballot will have contests now that longtime community volunteer William Hubbell is running against one-term incumbent Councilman Chris Eggen.

Hubbell’s campaign web site says that he has been a member of the YMCA Board, the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation Board, the Sunset Park Committee, the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce, and the Shoreline economic development committee.

Hubbell lists among his endorsers the man whom Eggen replaced on the Council four years ago, Rich Gustafson.

When Gustafson didn’t rum for a third term in 2007, he supported former councilman Paul Grace, who had lost to Janet Way in a close 2005 race, 50.8 percent to 49.69 percent. Eggen went on to defeat Grace by a 52 percent to 48 percent margin in 2007.

One of the other November contests matches former Councilwoman Way, who lost in the 2009 primary, against incumbent Councilwoman Doris McConnell, who has been on the Council since defeating former Councilwoman Maggie Fimia in 2007 by a 53 percent to 47 percent margin.

The third Shoreline City Council contest matches former Shoreline Planning Commission member Robin McClelland and attorney Jesse Salomon for the position now held by one-term incumbent Councilman Terry Scott.

Council members Will Hall, Keith McGlashan, Christopher Roberts and Shari Winstead are in the middle of four-year terms.
