The Final Tally

Posted by on January 7 at 15:53 PM

Yikes. By the time Friday’s 5:00 deadline for applications to fill the city council seat formerly held by Jim Compton rolled around, 99 council hopefuls had put their names in the running, most of them almost literally at the last minute. The final batch of names includes dozens of political unknowns; several candidates - among them mayoral staffer Timothy Durkan, former council member Sue Donaldson, and two-time council candidate Robert Rosencrantz - who had long been rumored to be running; and a handful of new names that council members called “strong contenders,” among them Sally Clark, Stella Chao and Russ Brubaker. Council members will decide Monday on a strategy for selecting the top dozen or so candidates, and have until January 26 to choose Compton’s successor.

I am unfamiliar with Stella Chao. Why have you included her in the very short list of "strong contenders" and printed her name in boldface?

If the boldface is supposed to provide a link to another article or website, it's not working.

I don't know why Goldy isn't on the list. He told me submitted his letter and received an "Are you serious?" response from someone in City Hall. Maybe he said, "no."

Wow, that's a lot typing. It's disappointing the Council did not post this information itself.

There are some othere worthwhile names for the second round.
Bruce Bently, Mark Hinshaw, Alice Woldt and Thomas Whittemore.

Who will the council pick...


Lois who?

Lois common denominator

Is anybody else pissed off that this is how we fill vacancies? Councilmembers will pick someone who--A) They don't want to run against, or B) Someone weak who won't compete with them for the public's attention.

Darnit, I'm not on the shortlist? =)

the answer is yes

I think Stella Chao was bold-faced because she is someone who has been an active community member for some time. She's the Executive Director of the International District Housing Alliance and from what I understand is a social worker by training (meaning she's has a master's degree in social work from the UW.) I don't know her personally, but I've heard of her.
