ELECTION: Former Mayor did not file; Campbell draws 2; Fernald gets pass


By Jack Mayne

As the filing deadline passed, it was revealed that a SeaTac civic activist is taking on a first term SeaTac City Councilmember, while a 10-year veteran Councilmember and former mayor and deputy mayor did not file for reelection.

First term Councilmember Kathryn Campbell drew civic activist Joel Wachtel, a retired New York businessman who moved to SeaTac because of relatives a few years ago. He once indicated he wanted to be considered for the city manager’s job when Donny Payne was jettisoned because of a improper interaction with a city staffer, but Wachtel backed away from the idea when Joe Scorcio was appointed to the job.

Former code compliance officer Terry L. Farden also filed as opponent to Campbell. This is Farden’s first venture into city politics.

Former deputy mayor and mayor and 10-year Councilmember Tony Anderson apparently figured a decade on the SeaTac City Council was enough when he did not file for reelection by the Friday (May 19) deadline.

Anderson’s position drew two candidates, Pam Pollock, with a post office address in Des Moines and Clyde (Fuzz) Hill, who lists his address in Burien.

Deputy Mayor Pam Fernald, running for her third term, did not draw an opponent.

Position 2:

  • Kathryn A. Campbell*
  • Terry L. Farden
  • Joel Wachtel

Position 4:

  • Pam Pollock
  • Clyde (Fuzz) Hill
  • Shaunie Wheeler

Position 6:

  • Pam Fernald*

*denotes incumbent
