Incumbent Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda faced off against challenger Kenneth Wilson.
SEATTLE — Incumbent Teresa Mosqueda has won her re-election bid for Seattle City Council position 8.
Mosqueda has captured 56% of the vote as of Nov. 4. Her challenger, Kenneth Wilson, has garnered 43% of the vote.
Mosqueda has served in position 8, which is a city-wide seat, for one term since 2018. She previously worked as a political and strategic campaign director at the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, where she worked on legislation related to immigrant and worker’s rights, including the statewide minimum wage initiative.
Wilson is a civil engineer and small business owner who says he feels the council is going in the wrong direction. He argues the council lacks members who understand day-to-day city operations and would benefit from a member who’s trained in infrastructure.
