According to the King County Elections site, eight residents are running for Redmond City Council positions.

At Position 2, Byron Shutz is running for re-election against challengers Steve Fields and Osama Hamdan.

At Position 4, Tanika Padhye currently holds the spot after being appointed by the city council in March to replace Kimberly Allen — cited scheduling conflicts with her job — and will run against Eugene Zakhareyev.

At Position 6, Jason Antonelli, Roy Captain and Jeralee Anderson are running. Current council member John Stilin’s term expires on Dec. 31.

Stilin announced on Wednesday that he will not be seeking a third term in this year’s elections.

“Several highly-qualified individuals expressed interest in being on the city council during the process to fill the position vacated by Kim Allen in January. This got me thinking that now would be a good time to make room for a new voice on the council,” he said.
