Don Davidson narrowed Vandana Slatter’s already slender lead in the contest for the second position in the top-two primary for Bellevue City Council Wednesday afternoon.
Slatter holds an 88-vote lead over Davidson, down from her 142-vote advantage in Tuesday results.
Lynne Robinson, the primary victor, is more than 3,500 votes ahead of the other two candidates, with just under 48 percent of the total vote.
Davidson, a council member for most of the past 29 years, got off to a slow start in the race because of illness and, due to a campaign glitch, didn’t submit material in time for inclusion in the King County Voters’ Pamphlet.
Slatter, a senior regional medical liaison for Amgen, raised $121,000 in campaign funds — $72,000 of it from herself — in setting a funding record for a Bellevue City Council primary.
Robinson, a physical therapist and chair of the Bellevue Parks and Human Services Board, said she and her husband knocked on the doors of 5,000 voters’ homes.
