The Bainbridge Island City Council will have two new members.
Mayor Rasham Nassar was easily defeated in the general election Tuesday by challenger Clarence Moriwaki in District 5.
“Thank you Bainbridge Island for choosing me to serve you on our City Council. Words can’t express how honored, humbled and forever grateful I am for your support, encouragement and vote of confidence,” Moriwaki says in an email to the Review Wednesday.
“This overwhelming vote is more than a mandate; it’s a plea and demand from the people that they want a responsible, predictable and accountable City Council that’s laser-focused on getting the job done, and with all of us working together, we can achieve that goal.”
Moriwaki emphasized his community service, being a champion for human rights and a large variety of government service. In the primary, Moriwaki received 68% of the vote. It increased to 79% Tuesday, with one less candidate.
Nassar supports the environment, responsible spending, social justice and equity.
The only close race is in District 3, a seat vacated by Christy Carr, where Jon Quitslund is leading Kent Scott 51% to 49%.
Quitslund emphasized his time on the Planning Commission, his attention to detail and his work on the Comp Plan.
Scott stressed his support of the Comp Plan, protecting wise development, preserving its rural character and encouraging sustainability.
Two other council members will hang on to their positions.
In District 2, Brenda Fantroy Johnson leads 74% to 26%. She says after she was appointed to the council she had worked hard for diversity, fiscal responsibility and listened to her constituents.
Challenger Chris Smith stressed preserving the island character, high-speed communications and a broad range of experiences.
And in District 7, incumbent Joe Deets has a huge lead over challenger Ron Peltier. Deets emphasized being responsive to voters, environmental record and being socially equitable.
Peltier, a former councilman, stressed his work ethic, being against wasteful spending and defender of the Comprehensive Plan.
In the primary, Deets won 48% of the vote. It increased to 72%, although also with one less candidate.
