Pierce County Council preliminary results

In Pierce County, Council Districts 2,3 4, and 6 were up for election yesterday. In preliminary results, District #2 Councilmember Tim Farrell (D-Tacoma) and District #6 Councilmember Dick Muri (R-Steilacoom) are on their way to easy re-election.

In District #3, incumbent Councilmember Roger Bush (R-Graham) is trailing his challenger Bruce Lachney (D- Eatonville) by a small margin of just 138 votes (8959-8821). Many more votes need to be counted. This race is too close to call at this point.

In District #2, State Representative Joyce McDonald (R-Puyallup) is leading Al Rose (D-Puyallup) in her bid to move from the state legislature to the County Council. While this race is still too close to call, her big lead in first choice votes appears to be too large for Rose to overcome with Merrival supporters' second choices.
