Mercer Island resident Benson Wong is running for Mercer Island City Council, challenging Position 6 incumbent Mike Grady.
Last year, he was one of the candidates vying for the city council’s open seat, which was vacated by former Mayor Jim Pearman.
“I am excited about the opportunity to work for the residents of the Island if elected onto the City Council,” Wong said in a statement. “While I was born and raised in Seattle, the Island has been my home for almost 30 years. My family and I love living here. I want to use the talents, skills, and energy that I have to help make the Island an even healthier community.”
Currently, Wong is an attorney with the Seattle law firm of Keller Rohrback L.L.P.
Wong has yet to declare any campaign donations. Grady has yet to file documents with Washington State’s Public Disclosure Committee. (end)
