A self-storage owner is running for one of two vacant city council seats in Long Beach, Washington. Richard Vincent, owner of All Safe Mini-Storage, will face George Coleman, a musician and retired software architect, in the Nov. 2 general election, according to the source.
Neither incumbent councilmember is seeking re-election. Vincent, 75, and Coleman, 72, will vie for the seat being vacated by Holli Kemmer, who was appointed in February 2016. Karla Jensen, owner of Mermaid Inn & RV Park, and Patrick Reddy, owner of 360 Apartments, will compete for the position previously held by Kevin Cline.
In addition to self-storage, All Safe at 108 26th St. N.E. offers U-Haul truck rentals.
