Second Langley council seat to have crucial Primary Election vote

Now two seats on the Langley City Council will have an early shake-out vote in  August's Primary Election.

R. Bruce Allen, a local volunteer and board member for the South Whidbey Youth Connection, filed as a candidate Thursday in the race for Position 4.

Allen, 70, joins fellow candidates Jonathon Moses and Thomas Gill in the race.

Moses and Gill are both Edgecliff residents, while Allen lives on First Street.

Langley's vote in the Primary Election is a crucial one in the city's history; residents will decide if they want to change their form of government to the council-manager model, which would eliminate the position of an elected mayor.

Also on the August ballot is the three-way race for Position 3 on the city council. Robin Adams, Kathleen Waters and Jim Sundberg are running for the seat.

The top two in each race will advance to the November election.

In other races, Freeland Water & Sewer District Commissioner Nolen "Rocky" Knickerbocker filed as a candidate late Wednesday to retain his Position 3 seat.

He'll run against Louis Malzone, who filed as a candidate in the race on Monday.

Grethe Cammermeyer has also filed to retain her Position 1 seat on the board for Whidbey General Hospital. Cammermeyer lives just outside Langley.
