Shoreline Councilwoman McConnell to seek re-election

Shoreline City Councilwoman Doris McConnell plans to seek a third four-year council term.

She said Thursday that she has filed the initial papers with the state public disclosure commission as a candidate for re-election.

Registration with the PDC allows candidates to raise and spend money for the Aug. 4 primary and Nov. 3 general election. Candidates file for ballot position May 11-15.

City council positions and other non-partisan positions with at least three candidates appear on the primary ballot, with the top two primary vote getters advancing to the November ballot.

Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the general-election ballot.

McConnell's term expires at the end of 2015, as do the terms for the positions that Councilmen Chris Eggen and Jesse Salomon now hold. Salomon registered with the PDC last fall.

Eggen has yet to formally announce his plans.

Candidates Jessica Cafferty and Ginny Scantlebury both have registered with the PDC as candidates for the position that Eggen holds.

Shoreline Planning Commissioner Keith Scully has registered with the PDC as a Council candidate without naming a position.

Best wishes for success, Doris! Thank you for listening to your constituents regarding the light rail subareas. I hope we can count on your continued effort in scaling back the rezones.

Listening to her constituents? hahaha. Her token opposition to 185th rezone accomplished NOTHING. Check her record on tolling. Check her record on the Ronald Wastewater takeover. Check her record on car tabs for Metro.
