Bill Bradburd, a neighborhood activist and property owner, plans to challenge Seattle City Councilmember Sally Clark this year for one of the council’s two citywide seats, he said Monday.
Bradburd lives in the Central District, he said. He chairs the Seattle Neighborhood Coalition. The 57-year-old has spoken out at City Hall against certain high-density real estate development in Seattle’s residential neighborhoods.
Clark has been in office since 2006 and lives in the Rainier Valley’s Brighton neighborhood. Her campaign has already raised more than $44,000.
The council is moving to geographic representation for seven of its seats this year. Two will remain citywide positions. All nine seats are up for grabs.
