Steve Sinwell has never voted in a Clyde Hill City Council election

Council candidate Steve Sinwell claims he cares deeply about the Clyde Hill community. Still, according to publicly available voter participation records, Steve Sinwell has never voted in a Clyde Hill City Council election.

Since Sinwell moved into his house in November 2016, there have been 3 City Council elections and he didn’t vote in any of them. In fact, public records of voting history show he only registered to vote in Washington on May 19, 2022 and only voted in the November 2022 election.

Sometimes people miss an election. That happens. Life gets in the way. But we deserve people on the council who care about Clyde Hill enough to vote in our city council elections. We have to ask, why now, after years of apathy, has Sinwell suddenly decided that he wants the power to make decisions for our community?
