The election seasons heats up in October, with the local League of Women Voters sponsoring a series of candidate and ballot measure forums, beginning Monday, Oct. 7, on San Juan Island.
Democracy is not a spectator sport... it just might be your ballot that determines which two Friday Harbor Town Council candidates advance to the general election.
The field of three candidates vying for the District 1 (San Juan) and District 2 (Orcas) County Council positions will each be winnowed down to two following the “special” primary election, Feb. 12. Meanwhile, Islands Weekly editor Cali Bagby offers a glance at competitors in the Lopez Island council race, with a profile of each and a following Q & A.
With three candidates vying for the District 2 post — Dr. Gregory Ayers and Rick Hughes have entered the race as well — voters across the county will narrow the field to two in a Feb. 12 primary election. The top two vote-getters will then square off in a countywide "general" election April 23.
