Shoreline City Council incumbent Keith McGlashan’s challenger Jin-Ah Kim said last week that she is not surprised by the size of McGlashan’s lead in results of the Tuesday, Nov. 7 election.

McGlashan’s lead over Kim having dropped to 55 percent to 45 percent in returns counted through Thursday with almost all ballots counted. McGlashan had a 60-40 percent lead on election night.

King County officials will continue to count ballots through final certification of results Nov. 28.

Kim said that she hadn’t expected to win.

“I was challenging a 12-year incumbent as an open Opioid addict,” she said. “Win or lose, the whole point was to show someone can while striving to make a difference.”

McGlashan said he hadn’t expected the big lead he had on election night.

“I was hoping to have 55 percent or better the first night,” he said.

The city and the incumbent have made a big deal out of surveys that show a super high rate of satisfaction with the way things are run in Shoreline. The fact that 45% of voters voted for a rather obscure challenger against a long time fixture, indicates that some folks ought to have another think! Many believe that the city has done a poor job of listening to citizen desires.
