Shoreline City Council - first returns

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

By Diane Hettrick

In Shoreline City Council Position #2, incumbent Keith Scully is running 2:1 against challenger Vivian Collica.

In Position #6, Betsy Robertson will keep the seat she was appointed to in January, and Luis Berbesi will go back to expressing his opinions in the 3-minute public comment section of the council meetings.

In Position #4, which always was the race to watch, challenger David Chen and incumbent Deputy Mayor Doris McConnell are within a heartbeat of each other, with Chen leading ever so slightly by 77 votes. Chen led McConnell 2:1 in the primary, but Ginny Scantlebury threw her support to McConnell for the general election.

Even though only 22.75% of the ballots have been counted, I don't expect much shift in the Keith Scully and Betsy Robertson races.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if the Chen - McConnell race went down to the wire.

Some ballots will still be coming in through the mail as they simply had to be mailed by Tuesday, not received at King county elections.

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

Unnecessary dig at Berbesi in this article. The author should have taken the high road.

I supported Mr. Berbesi as I am concerned about the continued Bellevue-ification of Shoreline. Agreed about the unnecessary dig, poor taste.
