A fifth candidate for Sammamish City Council emerged, becoming the fourth to officially announce: Chris Ross.

The Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter has the story here.

No position was declared, apparently.

The three other declared candidates are Jason Ritchie, who updated his filing with the state that he is seeking Position 1, the seat now held by retiring Kathy Huckabay; Minal Kode Ghassemieh; and John Robinson. Neither Ghassemieh nor Robinson revealed which position they will seek.

Ritjua Indapure hasn’t formally announced but has told several people she will be a candidate.

Mayor Don Gerend, Deputy Mayor Bob Keller and Huckabay announced they will not seek reelection. Tom Odell hasn’t declared his intentions and has not replied to an email asking his plans.
