Schneider has won another term on the Bainbridge Island City Council

City Councilwoman Leslie Schneider will retain her seat on the Bainbridge Island City Council.

In Thursday’s update of the vote tally in the council’s District 4, Central Ward seat, Schneider increased her advantage over challenger Grayson William Wildsmith by 527 votes.

Though Wildsmith led on Election Night, the race has seen a 588-vote turnaround since the first vote tally Tuesday.

Schneider has 53.3 percent of the vote, while Wildsmith has 45.9 percent.

Schneider, 42, was appointed to the District 4, Central Ward council seat in April 2018.

A graduate of UCLA, Schneider is cofounder of OfficeXpats and has served on the boards of Sustainable Bainbridge and the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.

It was the first attempt at elected office for Wildsmith, 22, a recent Gonzaga University graduate and political science major.

He has interned in Washington, D.C. with USAID in the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance on the Military Liaison Team, and also with the city of Bainbridge Island.
