In a city that’s been roiled by ethics issues and the role of developers on the City Council, Bothell voters were supporting candidates in three races that challenge the Council’s leadership.
Incumbent Andy Rheaume, a critic of the council majority led by developer and Mayor Joshua Freed, was leading two challengers for Position 2.
Rheaume had 56.5 percent of the Tuesday returns, followed by newcomers Roz Gorc, a supporter of Freed, with 25.8 percent and Maryanna Price, who was critical of the current council majority, with 17 percent.
In the race for two open seats being vacated by Freed allies, OneBothell President James McNeal was leading with 48.2 percent, followed by software engineer Tim Ottersburg with 37.5 percent and clinical psychologist Robert Carsrud with 13.8 percent for Position 4.
Results in the Position 6 race show architect Davina Duerr leading with 57 percent. Security firm manager John Lee had 30.2 percent and community volunteer Nadia Mustafa had 11.6 percent.
The city straddles the King/Snohomish County lines and votes are tabulated in both jurisdictions.
