Some surprises as candidates line up to file for local office

Updated May 20 with new filing in Edmonds School Board race, and stating incumbents in South County Fire race.

Perhaps the most suprising development as the candidate filing closed for local municipal and school board offices Friday afternoon was the entry of a fourth candidate for City of Edmonds Mayor — Councilmember Kristiana Johnson.

Johnson joins a now-crowded field that includes fellow councilmembers Neil Tibbott and Mike Nelson, plus City of Edmonds Planner Brad Shipley.

The accompanying charts complied from the latest data on the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) website and the Snohomish County Elections and Voter Registration site show the local races fleshing out with numerous changes from our initial report published last week.

Several new candidates have filed in the various races. In addition to the Edmonds mayoral race, several positions on the Lynnwood City Council and Edmonds School Board have multiple candidates, meaning there will be an August primary battle to decide which two will advance to November.

In Mountlake Terrace, previously announced city council candidate Crystal Gamon will face challenger Erin Murray for the Position 7 seat being vacated by Seaun Richards, who is not seeking re-election. The other incumbent councilmembers — Laura Sonmore, Bryan Wahl and Steve Woodard — are running unopposed.

For Edmonds School Board, four people are vying to fill the District 5 director seat being vacated by Diana White, who is not seeking re-election and is now running for Edmonds City Council. They are Casey Auve, Lisa Hunnewill, Nancy Katims and Rina Maile Redrup. And four newcomers are challenging incumbent Gary Noble for his District 3 seat: Jennifer Call, Rory Graves, Bol Lindgren and Mary Schultz. Edmonds resident Alvin Rutledge, who makes it his mission to run against unopposed candidates, filed late Friday afternoon to oppose District 1 Director Carin Chase.

Along with covering the candidates and the issues throughout the upcoming campaign, My Edmonds NewsLynnwood Today and MLT News will give our readers the opportunity to “follow the money” by providing regular updates from the PDC detailing campaign financials: how much is being contributed to each campaign and by whom, how much is being spent, and how much debt is being accumulated.

As the charts below show, several candidates in the more hotly contested races are already engaged in active campaigning and fundraising, particularly in Edmonds, where at least three candidates have already amassed five-figure war chests.
