Architect files to run against Councilmember Jean Godden
Posted by Emily Heffter
Local architect David Schraer has filed to run against Seattle City Councilmember Jean Godden in this year's council races. He's among the first to file his paperwork with Seattle Ethics and Elections.
Schraer is pro-tunnel and a critic of Mayor Mike McGinn. The most-recent headline on his blog is "McGinn, Yuppie Environmentalist."
Five of the council's nine members are up for re-election this year: Godden, Tim Burgess, Bruce Harrell, Sally Clark, and Tom Rasmussen are all seeking new four-year terms.
Iraq-war vet Dorsol Plants, who lost to Councilmember Sally Bagshaw in 2009, has filed, but hasn't said which council member he will challenge. Darryl Carter-Metcalf has filed to run against Councilmember Tim Burgess.
