Our picks on the November ballot
We were encouraged to see that nearly every race in this electoral cycle was competitive. With just a couple of exceptions, candidates have to work for victory.
We're fortunate that in two exceptions locally Randy Lord for Mukilteo City Council and Judy Schwab for the Mukilteo School District board of directors the candidates are proven incumbents who have served their constituents well.
In the Mukilteo School District, we endorse incumbent Jeff Thorp to another term for the District 4 seat. We think challenger Ken Renfro has the right attitude and willingness, and we hope he'll try again should Thorp prevail this time.
