Edmonds voters were returning incumbents to Edmonds City Council positions in early returns released Tuesday night.

Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas and Kristiana Johnson each had comfortable leads over their respective challengers — Alvin Rutledge and Josh Thompson. Councilmember Mike Nelson was running unopposed.

All three gathered at American Brewing Company to celebrate their victories Tuesday night.

Councilmember Kristiana Johnson reacts to the news that she has 61 percent of the vote as the initial returns roll in.

“I thought this would be closer,” a delighted Johnson exclaimed after she learned that she was leading Thompson in the Position 1 race by 1,415 votes Tuesday night — receiving 61 percent to Thompson’s 38 percent.

This was the first attempt at elected office for Thompson, who serves as a legislative aide to Snohomish County Councilmember Stephanie Wright.

Fraley-Monillas, meanwhile, was easily winning against long-time community volunteer Rutledge, earning 71 percent of the vote in early returns.

Snohomish County Elections will release the next round of results at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8. You can see the complete list of current Snohomish County returns here.
