Late this afternoon, King County Elections certified the results of this month’s election. And at 6:15pm, Alex Pedersen took the oath of office as the Council member for District 4.
It took four rounds of voting this afternoon, but the City Council ultimately voted to appoint Abel Pacheco to fill the vacancy left when Rob Johnson resigned his seat as the District 4 representative on the Council.
Yesterday the City Council announced an update to their plan for filling the vacant District 4 seat on the Council.
This morning, District 4 Council member Rob Johnson announced that he will not be seeking re-election next fall.
