Planning Commissioner Rituja Indapure, who ran for Sammamish City Council in 2017, has announced today on her Facebook page a campaign for city council in 2019.
After losing the 2017 to Council Member Chris Ross, Indapure was appointed in 2018 to the Planning Commission by City Council.
Indapure is the first person to announce candidacy for the city council in the November 2019 election.
She, along with Ross, won the 2017 August primary in a three person race. Ross received about 52% of the primary vote and went on to win the general election by a similar margin.
The Comment endorsed Indapure in that race.
This year, three seats are up for election, held by incumbents Mayor Christie Malchow, Tom Hornish, each completing their first terms; and Ramiro Valderrama, who is completing his second term. None has indicated reelection plans.
She has not indicated which seat she will seek.
