WAC 390-18-040 (2) states: The term "reelect" may be used in an advertisement by a nonincumbent candidate who has previously been elected to the office being sought provided that in the same advertisement IT IS CLEARLY STATED that the candidate is not the incumbent.

For this reason, and many others, I am voting for Richard Greenwood.

Even if, as you state, "Questions and comments by the county commission and coroner candidates were fairly low-key. "

How about wildfires? Climate change is leading to increased frequency of large severe fires, and will continue to do so into the future.

But downhillracer is right, it’s like trying to convince a meeting of the Flat Earth Society that the earth is round.

My sympathy to the owner of the bunny. I walk my leashed dog by Murr Field on a daily basis and frequently encounter off lead dogs, both at Murr Field and Howard-Tietan Park. It is unfortunate that so many people think that leash laws don't apply to them.
