Seattle City Councilmember Richard Conlin has drawn a second challenger: Brian Carver, an Amazon.com manager who says education, police department reform and user-friendly transit are the keys to his second Seattle City Council campaign. Carver lost in the 2009 primary for Sally Bagshaw’s seat.
“We need to do all these things while staying true to our progressive values as a city,” Carver said.
Carver criticized Conlin for being the one no vote on legislation requiring companies to offer sick leave. He has been working as a Democratic activist since his 2009 run. He lives with his wife and their 7-month-old son in Wallingford.
Socialist candidate Kshama Sawant is also in the race.
