Doris McConnell retains her
Shoreline council seat

By Evan Smith

Incumbent Shoreline City Council member Doris McConnell has officially defeated challenger David Chen, according to final, certified results of the Nov. 5 election.

Those results, posted Tuesday, Nov. 26, show McConnell with 8,794 votes (50.93%), 391 votes ahead of Chen, who has 8,403 (48.67%), with 69 write-in votes (0.40%).

The McConnell lead is beyond recount range. State law requires a recount only if the difference between two candidates is less than 0.5 percent of the two-candidate total, in this case 86 votes.

In elections for the other two council positions on Shoreline city ballots, incumbents Keith Patrick Scully and Betsy Robertson easily defeated their challengers.

Scully defeated challenger Vivian Collica 11,427 votes (68.02%) to 5,317 votes (31.65%), with 55 write-in votes (0.33%).

Robertson defeated challenger Luis Berbesi 12,848 votes (76.99%) to 3,783 votes (22.67%). with 57 write-in votes (0.34%).
