- Sammamish Comment recommendations for City Council candidates to advance to the November general election begins tomorrow.
- A full report of the Candidates Forum is in the next post, below.
Sammamish residents have an unusually good set of candidates this year from which to choose for the Aug. 1 primary, and from this, the November general election.
This hasn’t always been the case. In some years, some very weak candidates, or some with clear and self-evident personal agendas, ran. In several years, at least some incumbents were unopposed or had token opposition.
There are nine candidates seeking three Council seats, requiring a primary. These are in Positions 3, 5 and 7.
Position 3 candidates are Minal Ghassemieh, Karen Howe and Karen Moran.
Position 5 candidates are Ryika Hooshangi, Rituja Indapure and Chris Ross.
Position 7 candidates are Melanie Curtright, John Robinson and Pamela Stuart.
Position 1 candidates, Mark Baughman and Jason Ritchie, go straight to the November election; they are not on the Aug. 1 primary ballot.
