Marci Busby still has the lead in the race for the District 4 seat on the Snoqualmie Valley School Board. Busby, an incumbent, was one of four people who filed for the seat after the district was restructured earlier this year.
As of Nov. 18, she is leading with 4,362 to David Spring’s 3,961 votes in the Nov. 5 King County General Election.
Busby and Spring were the top two contenders from the September primary, outdistancing community activist Stephan Kangas and current school board president G. Scott Hodgins.
Gene Pollard’s winning margin has slowly increased in his run against incumbent Kevin Hauglie for position four on the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Board. Pollard is ahead of Hauglie, 4,257 to 3,586. Pollard, already a hospital commissioner, ran against Hauglie in an effort to change the makeup of the board.
In the other hospital race, newcomer Dariel Norris is outpacing board president and incumbent Dick Edward Jones by a wide margin, 4,947 to 2,466.
The hospital is officially known as King County Public Hospital District Number 4.
Matt Larson has been re-elected Mayor of Snoqualmie. He has 1,802 votes to his challenger, Ed Pizzuto’s 624.
Heather Munden will replace outgoing Snoqualmie City Council member Maria Hendricksen. Munden has 1,697 votes to the other candidate, Terry Sorensen’s 689.
In North Bend, the Si View Metropolitan Park operation and maintenance levy is passing 3,469 to 963.
Because this was an election by mail, ballots are still being counted. Updated results are regularly posted on the King County Elections website. The election will be certified – declared official – Nov. 26.
