Evan Smith: Rep. Maralyn Chase to discuss election plans Monday

Democratic State Rep. Maralyn Chase has scheduled a news conference for 5 pm Monday, April 26, at Shoreline City Hall “to discuss 2010 election plans.”

A few days ago, Chase’s plans were clear.

She had filed with the State public disclosure commission as a candidate for her current position in the State House of Representatives. Then she sought and won the support of the 32nd District Democratic Organization as a candidate for that position.

Now, that’s changed with Sen. Darlene Fairley’s announcement that she wouldn’t seek a fifth four-year term in the Senate.

A Chase challenge to Fairley was rumored four years ago, but Chase said at the time that she wouldn’t challenge a Democratic incumbent.

Now, there is no incumbent, leaving the seat open.

The Shoreline City Hall is at 17500 Midvale Ave in Shoreline.

Meanwhile, the 32nd District Democrats have scheduled a new nominating convention for Wednesday, May 12, at the Shoreline American Legion Hall, 14521 17th Ave NE, Shoreline.

An announcement from the District Democrats says, “The purpose of the Nominating meeting is to choose an official Democratic Party nominee for the 32nd Legislative District positions, all of which will be on the ballot in 2010,” apparently, meaning not just the now-open Senate seat but the House seats now held by Chase and Rep. Ruth Kagi.
