West Seattle politics: Shawn McEvoy running for County Council

A new entrant today in the 8th District race for King County Council, a position to which Councilmember Jan Drago was appointed last year but has said she won’t run for. Normandy Park Councilmember Shawn McEvoy is now in the running against previously declared candidate State Sen. Joe McDermott. Read on for McEvoy’s announcement:

Shawn McEvoy, former Mayor and current City Council member of Normandy Park, citing a strong sentiment from voters for a non-partisan King County Council, announced he is running for the King County Council seat in District 8.

McEvoy’s experience since 2002 as a non-partisan mayor and councilmember in an otherwise politically divided city is proof that non-partisanship works.

By focusing on finding common ground; working together through challenges; communicating, coordinating and cooperating; allows communities to get through the tough issues and focus on the future.

Shawn McEvoy wants voters to know that he is a candidate that is not locked into one party’s ideals and agendas.

We’ll be adding more information about McEvoy as we continue online research.

    It’s about time the “lucky sperm” from West Seattle’s 34th LD Democratic machine had to account for their neglect of communities and constituents outside the city limits.

Sorry, comment time is over.
