Six file during special filing period

There are six positions that will not be appearing on the ballot because no one filed for them.

Although a half dozen candidates expressed their interest during a three-day special filing period last week for Island County, there are still six positions that will not be appearing on the ballot this November because no one filed for them.

Seats on the boards for North Whidbey Water, Rhodena Beach Water, ​Scatchet Head Sewer and Camano Vista Water​ will all be absent from the ballot.

Island County Elections Supervisor Michele Reagan said the incumbents for these positions will be able to keep their seats for at least another two years, at which point they will appear on the ballot again.

If the incumbents do not wish to keep their seats, Reagan said they can resign and their respective boards will appoint someone else to fill their vacancy.

In the race for the Port of Coupeville commissioner for District 3, Patrick Kennedy, a financial advisor and president of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, is challenging Mike Seraphinoff, an environmentalist and a longtime member of South Whidbey Tilth.

Position 3 on the board of commissioners for South Whidbey Fire/EMS also had two interested candidates file for it.

Savannah Erickson, a former public information officer for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will be facing off against Jim Towers, a firefighter and station captain with the fire district.

Wayne David Mitchell and ​Donald A. Bowman are both running unopposed for seats on the boards for ​Crockett Lake Water and ​Scatchet Head Sewer, respectively.

Reagan said registered voters may file as a write-in candidate for any position on the ballot, provided they are a registered voter within the district in question.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 2.
