Klein, Ryan, Somers leading in Snohomish County Council races

UPDATE, 8:30 p.m.:

Republican Ken Klein and Democrat Terry Ryan held leads in their races for open seats on the Snohomish County Council Tuesday night.

Democratic incumbent Dave Somers, seeking a third consecutive term, led Republican Chris Vallo 57 to 42 percent.

Klein led Democrat Bill Blake 54 to 45 percent, and Ryan was ahead of Republican Robert Reedy 62 to 37 percent.

ORIGINAL:

Snohomish County voters will elect two members to open seats on the County Council today, and decide whether to keep veteran Dave Somers for a third consecutive term.

Republican Ken Klein faces Democrat Bill Blake, and Democrat Terry Ryan faces Republican Robert Reedy. The winners will replace John Koster and Dave Gossett, who couldn’t run for re-election because of the county’s consecutive-term limit.

Somers, a Democrat, faces Republican Chris Vallo, who hasn’t previously held public office.
