Challenger Richard Huddy sees himself as a collaborator and missing link in an effective city council. “I really believe in collaborating with people to achieve results,” Huddy said. “I think teamwork will get us where we want to go.” Incumbent Roy Runyon was first elected to council in 2007 and resigned 2013 when he moved to another district. He was elected to his current position later that year. He views himself as the council’s watchdog, its enforcer of the Bremerton Municipal Code.
