Trio of Coupeville incumbents file for election
Three incumbents filed as candidates this morning in Coupeville.
Republican Phil Bakke has filed as a candidate in the District 1 county commissioner's race.
It's the first time Bakke has run for the position. He was appointed to the post when longtime commissioner Mike Shelton resigned last year.
Republican Sheilah Crider filed as a candidate on Monday for the position of county auditor.
Crider was appointed to the position last year after Suzanne Sinclair resigned to take a job as a county manager in New York.
County elections officials said Island County Superior Court Judge Alan R. Hancock also filed Monday as a candidate to retain his seat.
The filing period for candidates runs through Friday, June 6.
