The three Redmond City Council candidates in this year's election will be running unopposed.

Friday was the deadline for candidate filing in King County and Byron Shutz, Kim Allen and John Stilin were the only ones to file for Council positions 2, 4 and 6, respectively.

This will be Allen's third term as a City Council member and Stilin's second term. Both candidates announced their plans to run for re-election in February.

Shutz, is running to fill Position 2, which will be vacated at the end of the year as current City Council President Pat Vache will step down and not seek re-election. Shutz first announced his plan to run for Redmond City Council in March.

In addition to the three Redmond City Council positions, two positions on the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) board of directors —  for District No. 3 and District No. 4 — are also up for re-election.

Nancy Phillips Bernard, who has been on the school board since 1997, is running for re-election in District No. 3, which covers LWSD's Kamiakin region and unincorporated King County around Kirkland.

Mark W. Stuart will be running for LWSD's District No. 4 position, which will be vacated at the end of the year by Doug Eglington, who will not be seeking re-election. District No. 4 covers Sammamish.
