Where can someone go to find information on all the new city council candidates?

I have checked the city website and it says seats 1, 3, 5 and 7 are open but only list candidates for seat 5.

Anyone know where we can find a complete list?

Thank you

Go to kingcounty.gov. Select departments. Select Elections. Select I want to learn about candidates and measures. Select August primary, 2017. Go to City of Tukwila, council position 5. This is the only Tukwila race on the primary ballot because there are more than two candidates. Select candidates for more information.

Or you can go here: https://info.kingcounty.gov/kcelections/Vote/contests/who-has-filed...
This will show everyone who has filed.

Hi Chuck thank you for the info. I had already seen that, but what I'm after are the candidates for the other seats not seat 5. From what I've heard all seats are being challenged but I can't find any information on it. Customers come I with their stories all the time but i would like to see the official list if one exists.

If you click the link that I provided and go to the city of Tukwila, you will see all candidates.

Ha...found it. Thanks Chuck for some reason I have to select city for all the seats to show.

It's disappointing we didn't have more people apply that vocalized they were interested in running.

So much going on in Tukwila these days it's important we have a strong team leading our city.

We have more of a selection than in the past, but Verna Seal was not challenged.

Jessica, I am having a campaign kick off today, Sunday June 11, from 3-5pm at Embassy Suites, 15920 W. Valley Highway, in Tukwila. I share this because some of the candidates in this current election will be in attendance, so if you would like to come and talk with them, you are welcome.
