Lake Forest Park election night returns

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

By Diane Hettrick

26% of the ballots that have come in from Lake Forest Park have been counted. It's far too early to call the outcome but it is startling to see well-known incumbents not faring well against their challengers.

Deputy Mayor Catherine Stanford is 423 votes behind challenger Lorri Bodi. Councilmember Tom French is only 298 votes ahead of Tracy Furutani. Furutani had so little name recognition in LFP that his name was misspelled at the candidate forum.

Mayor Jeff Johnson ran unopposed. Phillippa Kassover's opponent didn't campaign or bother to show up for the candidate forum, so it is safe to call the races for the two of them.

2621 ballots have been counted in a town with 10,164 registered voters and a long history of high turnout. Ballots mailed this week have probably not yet reached King county elections.

The next returns will be released on Wednesday November 6th at 4pm.
