Three seats on the Shoreline City Council will be unopposed in the next election, and one in Lake Forest Park, effectively placing those candidates on their respective councils.

In Shoreline, incumbent Chris Roberts is unopposed. Newcomers to politics, Laura Mork and Eban Pobee are unopposed for the seats being vacated by Will Hall and Susan Chang. There are two candidates for Keith McGlashan's position. The new mayor will be elected by the new council.

LFP City Council. Seated, from left: John Wright, Deputy Mayor Phillippa Kassover, Tom French. Standing, from left: John Resha, Lorri Bodi, Semra Riddle, Mark Phillips

Semra Riddle will retain her seat in Lake Forest Park. Three other positions in LFP were open seats, when incumbents John Wright, John Resha, and Mark Phillips chose not to run. Each of the three open positions has two candidates. The mayor is elected separately.

Current terms are up at the end of the year.

All have been invited to share statements.

Correction: the contested Shoreline race is for McGlashan's position, not Hall's position.
Correction: Apologies to John Wright for listing his first name wrong!!
