This week in politics: Seattle elections 'officially in full swing'
After a short breather from local politics, some 2021 Seattle City Hall races are starting to heat up.
Seattle City Council President Lorena Gonzalez joined Colleen Echohawk, executive director of the Chief Seattle Club, in the race for mayor this week.
And there’s still speculation that former Council President Bruce Harrell and former state Representative Jessyn Farrell could run.
Plus, candidates are already lining up for the City Council race to replace Gonzalez - and perennial candidates are at the ready.
"Alex Tsimermann, the Tom Brady of notorious city hall hecklers, is once again running for city council, so that means Seattle election season is officially in full swing," says Marcus Harrison Green, Seattle Times columnist, and founder of The South Seattle Emerald.
He joined KUOW's Paige Browning and Joni Balter, host of Civic Cocktail on the Seattle Channel, to talk about the week in politics.
