The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Filing for election starts on Monday

 


The filing period for candidates for positions on this year's election ballot runs next Monday through Friday.

Positions on the ballot are listed above; they include four positions on the Naselle/Gray's River Valley School District board of directors; three positions on the Wahkiakum School District board of directors; the mayor and three positions on the Cathlamet Town Council; two positions on the Port District 2 board of commissioners, and one position on the Port District 1 board of directors.

Town Council Member Robert Stowe on Monday announced he would file for town mayor, the position now held by two-term incumbent Dale Jacobson.

"I feel it's time for a change," Stowe said.

" I entered the race for mayor because I believe I can make a difference," he said in a written statement. "As a council member I see struggles in all areas of the town. Our infrastructure is badly in need of repairs and improvement.

"Cathlamet is at a critical junction. We need to move forward and take a more proactive stance in creating a business environment, while still retaining the small-town atmosphere that makes Cathlamet so unique. Downtown is a priority. With several empty store fronts, Main Street needs an infusion of business. Our waterfront area needs development and after years of talking, it’s time to act. Quality of life matters, but we need to attract people and jobs to add to our base rather than raising taxes and fees."

He served on the town planning commission in 2018 and was elected to the council in 2019.

Candidates may file in person at the county auditor's office or online via the Wahkiakum County Election webpage at http://www.co.wahkiakum.ws.us/419/Elections. The online Candidate Filing Portal will open at 9 a.m. on Monday.
