Election 2012: City of Brier Proposition too close to call; no change in legislative races

By Doug Petrowski

With more than half of the ballots in and counted, the City of Brier Proposition 1 annexation measure is still too close to call, with the yes votes for annexation leading the no votes, 19-16. The vote totals reflect that no new ballots from Brier were added Wednesday to the initial ballots counted by the Snohomish County Elections Division Tuesday night.

The proposition, if approved by a majority of Brier voters, would annex into the city limits 15.9 acres of the Allview Heights neighborhood between 228th and 231st Streets Southwest, and 24th and 27th Avenues West.

In local legislative district races, the ballots counted Wednesday made little change to the big leads that incumbents have over their challengers — leads that will not be overcome. Another round of ballot results is scheduled to be released by the county on Thursday.

Here are the totals as of Wednesday, 4:35 p.m.:

Legislative 1st District   
State Senator         Rosemary McAuliffe         17,333 (54.47%)?            Dawn McCravey        14,446 (45.39%)
House Rep. Position 1    Derek Stanford        17,612 (56.60%)?            Sandy Guinn              13,458 (43.25%)
House Rep. Position 2    Luis Moscoso          17,848 (59.54%)?            Mark T. Davies          12,058 (40.23%)

Legislative 32nd District?
House Rep. Position 1    Cindy Ryu                12,590 (67.07%)?            Randy J. Hayden        6,156 (32.79%)
House Rep. Position 2    Ruth Kagi                12,478 (66.78%)?            Robert Reedy              6,180 (33.08%)
