County Councilman Sullivan says he’s running for Everett mayor

EVERETT — Snohomish County Councilman Brian Sullivan is no longer in exploratory mode: He plans to challenge Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson for his job this year.

Sullivan, whose career includes serving as a state lawmaker and as Mukilteo’s mayor, announced in December that he was considering making a run for the job. He’s currently serving as chairman of the County Council. He made his election announcement Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Stephanson kicked off his campaign for a fourth term leading the largest city in Snohomish County.

Stephanson said his re-election bid enjoys the backing of a majority of the Everett City Council, as well as many county, state and federal elected officials from this area.

Sullivan is touting support from police, fire and aerospace Machinist unions.

The official filing period for the election is in May.
