Dovey seeks re-election to Federal Way City Council

Federal Way City Councilman Jack Dovey officially filed for re-election on Monday for council position 5. So far, there are no challengers.

“I decided it was important to have continuity with the council and the new mayor and new form of government,” Dovey said on his re-election bid. “I thought it made sense to continue working with the new mayor as we make this transition.”

Dovey was first appointed to the council in 1995 to fill a vacant position, and elected to that position in 1996. After a hiatus, he returned to the council in 2003, following an appointment to a vacant seat. He was re-elected in 2007, and served a two-year term as mayor starting in 2008.

In other city council races, Susan Honda and Roger Flygare are challenging incumbent Michael Park for council position 3. Park has yet to declare whether he will run for re-election. Federal Way City Councilman Jim Ferrell (position 1) and Deputy Mayor Dini Duclos (position 7) have also announced their bids for re-election.
