Pubcasting veteran Wayne Roth this week won election to the Bainbridge Island (Wash.) City Council.
Roth, who retired in September as g.m. of KUOW-FM in Seattle, handily won the race, with 61.4 percent of the vote to his opponent’s 38.5 percent.
“I’m a little incredulous,” Roth said on election night, “but the margin seems to be so large, I mean, it’s not even close.”
“Well, I’m thrilled,” he added. “I’m really looking forward to joining the council and the work of my colleagues. I so enjoyed the campaign. I just had so much support from the community. That has all been so much fun.”
