John Robinson, 68, the husband of former Sammamish Arts Commission chair Daphne Robinson, declared his candidacy for Sammamish City Council.

The Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter story is here.

Robinson is the third person to declare for City Council. Jason Ritchie, 45, was the first; Minal Kode Ghassemieh, 36, was the second.

Four seats are up for election. Mayor Don Gerend and Deputy Mayor Bob Keller said they won’t run again. Tom Odell and Kathy Huckabay haven’t declared their intentions.

Ritchie, of Klahanie, told people Odell and Huckabay recruited him. Robinson’s wife, the former Arts Commission, is Friends on Facebook of Huckabay and former Mayor Tom Vance, who is a Huckabay ally.
