There are three races for Aberdeen City Council that have yet to draw a candidate as of late Wednesday afternoon. Races for Ward 3 Councilman Jeff Cook’s, Ward 4 Councilwoman Margo Shortt’s and Ward 5 Councilman Pete Schave’s seats have yet to attract candidates willing to pay the $47.22 fee to enter the race. Robert J. Rodgers filed to fill the Ward 1 Position 1 seat currently occupied by James Cook.
Candidates continue to step forward in Ocean Shores, where Eric Noble has filed to fill the Position 7 seat he was appointed to last year. David Linn also has filed to seek the Position 7 job.
In Westport, Kathryn Franzen has decided to take on Rose Jensen to fill Councilwoman Brandi Holmes’ Position 5 seat.

Ocean Shores continues its tradition of political activism.
As of Tuesday afternoon, there were six contested races for this fall’s elections. Three of those races were for Ocean Shores positions.
In the race for mayor of Ocean Shores, incumbent Crystal Dingler will face off against Carlos Roldan and Dan Marlowe. Richard Wills, Lorraine Hardin and John Schroeder are vying for OS Councilwoman Lisa Griebel’s Position 3 seat. Griebel has yet to enter the race. And Councilman Bob Peterson faces a challenge from Chuck Anderson for the OS Council Position 6 job.
In Hoquiam, Mayor Jasmine Dickhoff has decided to seek re-election. Ben Winkelman was the first person to file for that position.
Hospital District 2’s third district seat has two candidates: Lynn Csernotta and Al Smith. They seek to fill Miles Logenbaugh’s seat.
And the race for mayor of Aberdeen remains unchanged from yesterday with three people filed as of Tuesday afternoon.
Monday at 5:30 p.m.
Two candidates filed to challenge incumbent Aberdeen Mayor Erik Larson’s bid for re-election, Hoquiam Mayor Jasmine Dickhoff and City Councilman Ben Winkelman have filed for mayor, and incumbent Ocean Shores Mayor Crystal Dingler has a challenger in Carlos Roldan as of Monday evening, the first day of candidate filing for the 2019 election.
Aberdeen Ward 5 Councilman Pete Schave and current Aberdeen City Council President Tawni Andrews will face Larson in the primary. The top-two vote getters in any race move on to the general election in November.
In other mayoral races, Kyle Pauley has filed for Mayor of Cosmopolis; incumbent Vini Samuel has filed for re-election in Montesano, as has incumbent Westport Mayor Rob Bearden. Angelo M. Cilluffo has filed for Mayor of Oakville.
