Salomon, Scully hold early leads in Shoreline council races

Shoreline city council candidates Jesse Salomon and Keith Scully both led opposing candidates in early returns from the November 3 election posted Tuesday night.

Incumbent Salomon held a 54.22 percent to 45.44 percent lead Tuesday over challenger Lorn Richey in a result that was far closer than the 64-26 percent lead that Salomon held in a three-way August primary.

Scully, chairman of the city planning commission, held a 59.03 percent to 40.64 percent lead over candidate Jessica Cafferty for the position that Councilman Chris Eggen is giving up after two four-year terms.

Incumbent Councilwoman Doris McConnell ran unopposed for a third term. The four other members of the council are in the middle of four-year terms.

Eggen holds a big lead in a bid for a position on the Ronald Wastewater District board.

King County elections officials will announce new results each afternoon until final certification November 24.

Considering there were approx. 9100 votes in the August primary, and only 6287 votes have been counted so far, a lot could change on the Richey vs. Salomon race. 550 vote difference on today's initial count.

keeping fingers crossed for a Richey win after all the votes are counted. not looking forward to another term of Saloman betrayals.
