As the results roll in tonight, Election Night parties (some of which will inevitably turn into poopers) election partywill convene around town.  Here’s where Tacoma’s municipal candidates plan to hang out:

Tacoma mayoral candidate Marilyn Strickland‘s campaign will be gathered on the Hilltop at Le Le’s Restaurant.

Meanwhile, her opponent, Jim Merritt, will convene with his team at Woody’s on the Water.

Why is it not surprising that at-large city council candidate and SeaTac firefighter Keven Rojecki will be gathering at Tacoma Fire Dept.’s Engine House No. 9?

Victoria Woodards will huddle at The Hub, where she and her supporters will co-mingle with campaigners for unopposed City Councilman Jake Fey.

Position 4 candidate Marty Campbell plans to hang out at The Swiss, while his opponent, Roxanne Murphy, plans to take in the vote count at home in East Tacoma (though Murphy added she may be “possibly hopscotching” to the nearby Top of Tacoma Bar and Cafe).

In the South End, both candidates for Tacoma City Council Position 5 seat — Joe Lonergan and Beckie Summers Kirby — say they’re planning to stay put, at home.
