Marty McLaren increases lead over Seattle School Board President Steve Sundquist

New vote counts released Wednesday afternoon showed an even larger lead for West Seattle challenger Marty McLaren over Seattle School Board President Steve Sundquist.

McLaren, a retired teacher, led Sundquist by almost 3,000 votes – 51.5 percent to 48.1 percent.

A little more than half of the expected vote had been counted.

In the other school board races, challenger Sharon Peaslee pulled within 3,500 votes of District 1 incumbent Peter Maier but was still trailing.

The other incumbents, Sherry Carr (District 2) and Harium Martin-Morris (District 3), maintained their large leads over challengers Kate Martin and Michelle Buetow.
