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.
