Flynn and Carson have hefty lead in Redmond City Council race

In the first of  just two con­test­ed Red­mond City Coun­cil races, Tom Fly­nn has a sig­nif­i­cant lead over his oppo­nent Joel Wright:

Tom Fly­nn  56.56%

Joel L. Wright 42.89%

For a first time can­di­date, Fly­nn ran a strong cam­paign, gar­ner­ing the endorse­ment of four of the sev­en cur­rent city coun­cil members.

In the sec­ond race, incum­bent coun­cil mem­ber David Car­son is mak­ing an equal­ly good showing:

David Car­son 56.08%

Sue Stew­art  43.30%

Sue Stew­art is the only Red­mond City Coun­cil can­di­date who applied for and received endorse­ments from Red­mond’s local Demo­c­ra­t­ic par­ty, both the 45th and 48th Leg­isla­tive Dis­trict Democ­rats. Car­son was endorsed by Repub­li­cans from Wash­ing­ton Attor­ney Gen­er­al Rob McKen­na, to Repub­li­can King Coun­ty Coun­cilmem­bers Hague, Lam­bert and Dunn.

It looks like Red­mond won’t win anoth­er pro­gres­sive voice on the city coun­cil this year.
