Candidate filing week starts with surprises

Candidate filing week began with some unexpected names.

But as of Tuesday morning, no seats are contested. The filing period runs through Friday.

Thomas Gill hopes to return to the Langley City Council. The former city councilman and mayoral candidate is running for the seat on the Langley City Council currently held by Ursula Shoudy, who said she isn’t seeking reelection.

Mayor Tim Callison filed to continue as mayor.

Freeland resident Charles Currier filed for the position on the South Whidbey School Board currently held by Shawn Nowlin, who isn’t seeking reelection.

Linda Racicot, chairwoman of the school board, also filed.

Curt Gordon filed for the seat he currently has on the board for the Port of South Whidbey.

Mike Noblet, a Clinton resident and former councilman in Bothell, filed for a position on the South Whidbey Fire/EMS board of commissioners.

“My priorities are to support Chief Palmer’s leadership, to attract and retain firefighters and EMTs, both paid and volunteer, to secure funding to replace and maintain aging fire vehicles, and, to play an active role in hiring a replacement when Chief Palmer retires,” he said in a press release.
