No Surprises in Kirkland City Council Elections early results

Kirkland City Council incumbent Doreen Marchione, candidate Jay Arnold and the three unopposed incumbents are leading as of the latest results from King County Elections as of 8:15 pm.
The two races with challengers, Positions 1 and 7, have the leaders winning handily. The three other council positions went unopposed, which says something about the state of Kirkland politics. It is either contentment or apathy. You decide.
Note: Position 2 candidate Dave McDonald removed himself from the race after the deadline so his name appeared on the ballot.
