Shari Winstead Withdraws from Shoreline City Council Race

Shari Winstead announced her official withdrawal from the Shoreline City Council race for position 5. Shari was elected in 2009, and has served as a Councilmember for two terms, including two years as Mayor, and will continue to serve as Deputy Mayor until the end of her current term, December 31, 2017.


"It's been an honor to serve the citizens of Shoreline over the past eight years. Shoreline is a wonderful community and I am proud of the accomplishments of our Council.  There comes a time in everyone's life when it is necessary to re-prioritize where we spend our time and energy. "I'm blessed with a wonderful family and circle of friends and I look forward to spending more time with them, a well as focusing on my professional full-time job at Davis Wright Tremaine.

I was fortunate to have a very qualified candidate step forward, freeing me to resign at the end of my term, knowing that our City will be in good hands.

I hope you will join me in endorsing Susan Chang as your next City Councilmember. Susan will be a wonderful asset to our City Council. 

In the meantime, I look forward to finishing my term in a productive and engaged manner, and look forward to staying involved in our community as a citizen."


Yours in our love of Shoreline,
