Muni League ratings favor Bellevue incumbents

Three Bellevue City Council members running for re-election have received high marks in the Municipal League’s candidate ratings.

Don Davidson and Kevin Wallace were both judged outstanding, the top ranking.

Davidson’s challengers received solid but less stellar ratings. Bellevue Parks and Human Services Board Chair Lynne Robinson was ranked as very good and Overlake Hospital Foundation board member Vandana Slatter as good.

Wallace’s opponents were ranked further down the scale: East Bellevue Community Council Chair Steve Kasner was ranked as adequate, and two other candidates — light-rail transit foe Bill Hirt and Pirate Party member Jeffrey Talada — were rated not qualified.

The third incumbent on the primary ballot, Mayor Conrad Lee, was rated as very good, and his opponent, graphic artist Lyndon Heywood, as not qualified.
