Judges among first to run

Only incumbents filed for Island County offices by noon Tuesday.

Norma Smith, a Republican from Clinton, filed to keep her District 10 position. Former Snohomish County Sheriff Rick Bart signed up to take on U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen.

In-person candidate filing at the Island County Auditor’s Office in Coupeville ends at 4:30 p.m., June 6.
