Filing week is over and nobody else jumped into local races on this final day, so the lists of who’s in the running for three local races are the same as what we published last night, each with the incumbent plus two challengers:
SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL DISTRICT 1
KING COUNTY COUNCIL DISTRICT 8
Michael Robert Neher
SEATTLE SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 6
Also of note, though they are voted on King County-wide, the two Port of Seattle Commission positions – #2, which commissioner Courtney Gregoire is relinquishing, has seven candidates; #5 has incumbent Fred Felleman and two challengers.
See the full list of filings for offices around King County here. The primary to narrow fields down to the top two contenders is August 6th.
(Side note: In the first-ever City Council District 1 primary four years ago, nine candidates ran. This time around, D-1 has the smallest primary field, with the other six districts each having a lineup of six to 14 contenders.)
