Democrats from the 32nd Legislative District have endorsed Shoreline City Council candidates Doris McConnell, Lorn Richey and Keith Scully.

They also have endorsed Shoreline Councilman Chris Roberts in his run for King County elections director.

Incumbent Councilwoman McConnell will run unopposed in the Nov. 3 general election.

Richey, an Echo Lake area resident, will meet incumbent Councilman Jesse Salomon and Richmond Highlands area resident Michael Bachety in the Aug. 4 primary, which will narrow the field to two for the general election. The Democrats had endorsed Salomon when he ran for his first term in 2011.

Scully, a member of the Shoreline Planning Commission, will run against Jessica Cafferty, who works for a Seattle women's organization. The two seek to replace Councilman Chris Eggen, who will not seek re-election, but instead will run for a position on the Ronald Wastewater District board of commissioners.

Roberts, who was elected to the City Council with Democrats' backing in 2009 and 2013, will meet State Rep. Zack Hudgins and nominated Deputy Elections Director Julie Wise in the primary, which will narrow the field to two for November. They seek to replace retiring Elections Director Sherrill Huff.

The 32nd Legislative District Democrats include members and precinct committee officers from Shoreline, northwest Seattle, south Edmonds, Woodway, the city of Lynnwood and part of Mountlake Terrace.

Julie Wise is not the Deputy Director, she's the Acting Deputy Director, due to the fact the that the King County Council has held up her nomination.
