Seattle School Board Primary Update for Monday

The numbers have barely shifted in two races; Position 3 and Position 6 (Steve Sundquist and Marty McLaren). 

The numbers are nearly the same for Michelle Bueow/John Dunn in Position 3; Buetow is still just under 200 votes ahead of Dunn.

In Position 1 (Peter Maier/Sharon Peaslee), Peaslee went up over 37% (to Peter's 51%)

In Position 2 (Kate Martin/Sherry Carr), Sherry has dipped to just below 40 percent ( 39.97%)  and Kate is at 32.41.  That makes them just 7.56% apart, the lowest percentage of any race.

Today captured a very small number of votes, only .6% of the registered voters for district 3 were counted today. I think we are approaching asymptotic final results and I think Michelle is going to beat Dunn. Never know til it's over though.

It is fascinating that Sherry is under 40%, if only by a hair. I have to say that one of the best showings of all was Jack Whelan. He came out of nowhere, with no base, no experience and managed to get over 17% of the vote in his district! I enjoyed chatting with him several times and found him thoughtful and interested. I hope he continues to pay attention and contributes his ideas and efforts to the November campaign. He can make a difference without being a candidate.

At the very least, the district should be a great source for curriculum ideas for his course in strategic communication.

Well said, Dorothy. I, too, hope he stays active in the campaign by supporting challengers and giving us the benefit of his intelligence.

Good luck to you, Jack.

I had the same experience. Jack is a wonderful man. I'm grateful he threw his hat into the race and broadened the conversation. I also believe Jack has much to offer..and hope he stays involved.

Daily ballot return statistics (released daily at 8PM) say that 20 more votes arrived today in district 3 race. So there seems to be about 116 ballots uncounted and perhaps a very small number yet to arrive.

Michelle is beating Dunn by 181 votes.
