Ex-mayor Pete Kinch among filers for vacant council seat

Three people have filed for Drew Nielsen's seat on the Everett City Council as of 11 a.m. Wednesday morning. They include Pete Kinch, a former mayor from 1990 to 1994 who was unseated by Ed Hansen.

Scott Bader, the candidate who ran unsuccessfully for Councilwoman Brenda Stonecipher's seat last fall, is another. When I spoke with him last, he was employed by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle.

The third is Gigi Burke, former owner of Crown Distributing, who sits on various boards, including the Public Facilities Board of Comcast Arena and the Board of Trustees at Everett Community College.

Nielsen died Saturday in a rafting accident on the Green River. If his replacement seems quick, it is. The Everett charter calls for an election this year. In order to get candidates on the ballot, the auditor is accepting filings for the position until 5 p.m. Friday.
