Teresa Mosqueda, Kenneth Wilson leading in Seattle City Council Position 8 race
Teresa Mosqueda and Kenneth Wilson are leading in the race for Seattle City Council’s at-large Position 8 in the primary election, garnering 59.37% and 16.21% of the vote, respectively.
Trailing behind Mosqueda and Wilson is Kate Martin with 11.56% of the vote, followed by Paul Glumaz at 5.37%. No other candidate has more than 2% of the vote.
Teresa Mosqueda was first elected to city council in 2017, defeating Jon Grant by a 60% to 40% margin. This year will mark her first run for re-election. Over her tenure on the council, she led efforts to pass the city’s JumpStart big business tax, and assisted in drafting a voter-approved initiative to give Washington workers guaranteed paid sick and safe leave.
A civil engineer who runs his own consulting business, Kenneth Wilson says that he’s running for city council based on the belief that Seattle “needs someone with technical expertise to help improve the livability of Seattle, especially with much of the city’s crumbling infrastructure in need of attention.”
