Yakima City Council Remains Intact After Election

City of Yakima

The two incumbents were re-elected Tuesday night in the race for Yakima City Council.

KNDO is reporting that they are both grateful to the voters to have another term in office.

Charles Noel challenged incumbent Dave Ettl. Currently Ettl leads 65 percent to 34 percent. This would be Ettl’s second term.

Bill Lover said his challenger Carole Folsom-Hill ran a strong campaign, but Lover is leading 54 percent to 45 percent. This will be Lover’s third term.

The incumbents said it is an exciting time for the city with many new development projects in the works. Both council members plan to continue to plug the issues they believe are the most important.

“I hope to continue to being involved in the gang fight, that’s very important to me as a long-term project,” said Ettl. “Meeting on our city and what the downtown is going to look like over the next few years.”

“I look for savings, tax savings, and I approach every project the same way,” said Lover.

More ballots will be counted today but no races or issues are expected to change.
