Nearly 60 people want a shot at being a Seattle City Council member
SEATTLE – Nearly 60 people are throwing their name into the ring to become one of seven new Seattle City Council members. It’s a big number for such few seats. The candidates include everyone from activists to a massage therapist. Four of the seats will be open come election day after Sally Bagshaw, Mike O’Brien, Bruce Harrell, and Rob Johnson announced they won’t run for re-election. Incumbent council members Kshama Sawant, Debora Juarez, and Lisa Herbold are up for re-election and will face challengers.
