4 Federal Way City Council frontrunners advance to general election

Early returns show Honda and Edwards earn top spots for Pos. 3; Kochmar and Pagliocco for Pos. 7.

Federal Way City Council incumbent Susan Honda and challenger Sharry Edwards will likely face each other in November’s general election for the Pos. 3 seat, as the two candidates garnered the most votes in Tuesday’s primary.

In addition, council candidates Linda Kochmar and Tony Pagliocco, who are vying for Pos. 7, are poised to advance to the general election.

Early returns on Tuesday night showed Honda winning by a wide margin with over 58% of the vote — 4,904 votes to Edwards’s 1,910, according to King County Elections.

The third candidate vying for Pos. 3, Lamont Styles, garnered over 18% of the vote.

Kochmar, a former state representative, is so far leading the Pos. 7 race with over 41% of the vote, earning 3,472 votes to political newcomer Pagliocco’s 2,747, or nearly 33%.

Hopeful Katherine Festa received the least amount of votes for Pos. 7, about 25%.

The Pos. 7 seat is currently held by Dini Duclos, who did not seek re-election this year.

So far, King County Elections has counted over 279,000 ballots, and still has an estimated 190,000 ballots left to count.
