Funk Congratulates McCardle on Victory


Though the last vote counts are still trickling in, Andre Funk has sent his congratulation to Doug McCardle, who will take position 3 on the Mountlake Terrace city council.

Just to recap, there were four city council positions up for election this year:

  • Position 1: Rick Ryan
  • Position 2: Jerry Smith
  • Position 3: Andrew Funk
  • Position 4: Kyoko Wright

Funk recently sent the following letter to his supporters:

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for all of your support this year! I especially want to thank all of you who helped out this year with contributions, doorbelling, sign waving, and vocal support. I also want to particularly thank Stohn Nishino, DJ Wilson, Brian Harkins, and my parents, Kevin and Cheryl Funk, who all helped out in huge ways and made winning a possibility.

As you know, we came up just short of winning the election – garnering 1,915 votes (48.1%), just 134 votes short of victory [votes continue to be counted, click here to see up-to-date results]. But, we ran a good campaign and I met many great people and learned many good lessons.

I want to congratulate Doug McCardle on his win – I think he will make a great addition to the council with his background on the Planning Commission and Police Advisory Board. I look forward to working with him to make Mountlake Terrace a better place.

Best regards,

Andrew G. Funk
