Seattle City Councilman Tim Burgess, and Arena Proponent, Announced he is running for Mayor of Seattle

Why this matters: he lead on the political side of the arena deal. If he were to win then we could reasonably assume he will continue to lead on our issue.
This sums it up:

“I like Tim,” Council Member Tom Rasmussen told The Stranger earlier this year. “He does his homework… He would make a good mayor.”

True. Tim Burgess will be painted as "conservative", which he is. In contrast to McGinn, that's likely going to be a positive attribute.

Good luck to you, Tim.
Free advice, not everybody will like all of your policies, but an electable majority will like who you are. Be yourself.
