Constantine, Dunn top primaries; Parks levy passing

Wed, Aug 7, 2013

Incumbents ruled the day in this week's primary election battles and the King County Park Levy easily passed as voters had their first chance to weigh in on 2013's political battles.

With no Renton-specific races on the ballot, attention was focused on King County matters as County Executive Dow Constantine and County Councilman Reagan Dunn are both up for re-election this fall.

In his race, Constantine cruised to a first-place finish with 75.57 percent of the vote. He will face off against Alan. E. Lobdell in the general election in November as Libdell finished second with 12.32 percent.

Everett A. Stewart finished in third with 7.47 percent and Goodspaceguy received 4.15 percent in the four-way race.

Dunn also had an easy path to the top of his primary, winning with 55.5 percent of the vote. Dunn will take on Shari Song in the fall election. Song finished second with 34.83 percent.

Third-place finisher Kristina Macomber received 9.27 percent of the vote.

The only other race on the ballot this week for Renton residents was the King County parks Levy replacement, which also appears on its way to an easy approval from voters.

The levy received 68.93 percent yes votes to 31.07 percent no.

As of Wednesday, total ballots received for the primary were 251,976 out of 1,187,886 registered voters in King County.

The election will be certified Aug. 20. For the most recent updates, visit kingcounty.gov/elections.aspx.
