Alex Pedersen, a progressive results-oriented Democrat running on a platform of accountability, was the first candidate in the entire city to qualify for the city's Democracy Voucher program and received the most vouchers from District 4 residents.
Pedersen officially launched his campaign on November 28, 2018 for District 4. Because the incumbent Rob Johnson vacated his seat early, the City Council appointed a temporary caretaker until D-4 voters choose their own 4-year Councilmember in the August primary and November general elections.
District 4 is home to approximately 100,000 residents in 20 neighborhoods including Bryant, Belvedere Terrace, Cowen Park, Eastlake, East Fremont, Hawthorne Hills, Inverness, Laurelhurst, Magnuson Park, Maple Leaf, Ravenna, Ravenna Springs, Roosevelt, Sand Point, the U District, University Park, View Ridge, Wallingford, Wedgwood and Windermere.
