Blossom will seek third term on Bainbridge Island City Council

The longest serving member of the Bainbridge Island City Council is going to run for another term.

Councilwoman Sarah Blossom registered as a candidate for the November election last week, and will seek to retain her seat.

It’s something she’s done before.

Blossom was first elected to the District 6, South Ward position in November 2011 in a race against Robert Dashiell.

She was voted into a second term in November 2015, and ran unopposed in that election.

Blossom registered with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission, the state agency that serves as a watchdog on campaign financing, on Thursday, May 2.

This November, four seats on the seven-member council will be on the ballot.

In addition to the District 6, South Ward seat now held by Blossom, other positions up for a vote include the at-large, District 1 seat; the District 2, North Ward seat; and the District 4, Central Ward position.

Councilwoman Leslie Schneider has filed to run to retain the District 4, Central Ward seat election.

Mayor Kol Medina is also campaigning to keep the council position he now holds, the District 2, North Ward seat.

Incumbent Councilman Ron Peltier announced last week he will not run again for the at-large council seat. Two candidates have already stepped forward in that race; former councilwoman Kirsten Hytopoulos, and Anthony Oddo, chairman of the city’s Marine Access Committee.
