Evan Smith: McGlashan Endorses Robin McClelland for Shoreline Council

Shoreline City Councilman and Mayor Keith McGlashan has endorsed Council candidate Robin McClelland.

McClelland, a former City Planning commission member, plans to run against attorney Jesse Salomon for the position now held by Councilman Terry Scott.

Scott announced in late March that he would not seek a second term on the Council. McClelland and Salomon both announced in April that they would seek the open seat.

In a Tuesday, June 1, press release, McGlashan referred to McClelland as an “active community member.”
“Robin is exactly the kind of leader we need on the Shoreline City Council,” McGlashan said in announcing the endorsement..”She has an extensive knowledge of what makes a great city work, the vision to help us achieve our potential, and the longtime commitment to our community to see that we do.”

McClelland responded, “I am honored to have the support of Mayor McGlashan and look forward to working with him on the Council to achieve real results for all Shoreline residents.”

McClelland also has endorsements from Democratic State Rep. Ruth Kagi, Shoreline Councilwoman Shari Winstead and former Councilman Rich Gustafson.

McClelland announced Tuesday that she will kick off her campaign with Jazz in the Park Sunday, June 5, from 4 to 6 pm at Paramount Park. The Tuesday press release said that more information is available at ElectRobinForShoreline

McClelland registered as a candidate with the State Public Disclosure Commission in late April, a step that allows her to raise and spend money for the August 16 primary and November 8 general election. She has yet to report any money raised or spent. Salomon has reported raising $20,410 and spending $7,105.

Candidates file for ballot positions June 6-10 either on line or in person at the County elections office in Tukwila. Candidates have been able to file by mail since May 20.

If McClelland and Salomon are the only candidates, the position will appear only on the November general-election ballot. If three or more candidates file for the position, it will appear on the August primary ballot.
