It’s Day 2 of filing week in Whatcom County, and the list of candidates who will appear on this year’s ballot has gotten slightly longer.
There are now four people running for Mayor of Ferndale, with Vicca Thompson joining J. Manuel Reta, Cathy Watson, and Jon Mutchler in the race.
Below is a partial list of those who have submitted their names to the county auditor. This list only includes information from those who filed on Tuesday, May 12, and a few afternoon and evening filings from Day 1 (these are noted on the list). For more Day 1 filings, check out this longer list from Ralph Schwartz yesterday evening.
The full list of 82 names (and growing) can be viewed on the Secretary of State’s website here. Incumbents are marked with an “(I).”
