Bellevue City Councilman Don Davidson on Friday conceded defeat in the primary race for his Position 6 seat to opponents Lynne Robinson and Vandana Slatter, citing results that left him in third place by just over 1 percentage point.

Robinson leads the race, carrying nearly half the 21,486 votes counted. Davidson, who has served on the council for 27 years, has 25.2 percent of the votes to Slatter’s 26.3 percent. Votes have been tallied for the past week.

“It’s clear that the election has been decided,” Davidson said in a news release.

The former Bellevue mayor pledged to continue to work for safety, environmentalism and low property taxes for the rest of his term on the council.

“It’s important that our city government stays nonpartisan and focused on the needs of our citizens,” he said, “and I hope to see that approach in the upcoming general election.”
