Sept. 20, 2019: It is now clear that the Sammamish City Council election this year has come down to one issue: unfettered development across the city vs controlling development so it doesn’t further overwhelm the roads and aggravate the congestion that already exists.
All other issues have taken a back seat.
If you support unfettered development, Karen McKnight, Rituja Indapure and Karen Howe are your choices for council.
If you want to control development and moderate traffic congestion, Christie Malchow, Kent Treen and Ken Gamblin are your choices.
Two more candidates filed yesterday for Sammamish City Council candidacy: Ken Gamblin filed for seat 6 opposing Rituja Indapure. Kent Treen filed seat 4, opposing Ryika Hooshangi and Karen Howe. As it stands today, seat 4 will have a primary in August. Both Treen and Gamblin are first time candidates.
The deadline for filing for the election with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission is Friday.
