Central Whidbey Fire bond sees landslide approval

With more than 65 percent of voters approving its bond, Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue appears to be the big winner in Tuesday’s election.

Meanwhile, two big measures on North Whidbey went down in flames.

North Whidbey Fire and Rescue’s proposed levy lid lift once again failed, this time with 65.6 percent of voters against the measure, and North Whidbey Park and Recreation District’s replacement levy had nearly 59 percent voter approval, but it didn’t achieve the 60 percent supermajority requirement.

All of the races for Oak Harbor City Council were unopposed, but in a race for Oak Harbor school board, John Diamond came out on top.

He won the race over Cory Glach with more than 64 percent.

TJ Lamont won the race for the North Whidbey Fire and Rescue board.

He has 53.24 percent over Gerald Smith.

Shane Hoffmire will return to the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District board with more than 48 percent of the vote in the race against Mukunda-Krishna Tyson and John Chargualaf.

And Patricia Hardin has more than 58 percent of the vote over Dan Brown for the other contested district seat.

Heidi Beck beat out Bryan Stucky for a seat in Cemetery District One with more than 54 percent.

In Central Whidbey, Christine Crowell was elected to Coupeville Town Council over Brett Rebischke-Smith with nearly 58 percent.

Voter turnout was 40.64 percent and the election will be certified Nov. 28.
