Voters have three starkly different candidates to choose from in the race for Hospital District Commission position two.
Community Events, July 2015
In the race for commissioner of Whidbey General Hospital, voters have three very different candidates from which to choose.
Martha Yount is arguably the wildcard in the race to be the next mayor of Oak Harbor. The two other candidates in the contest, councilmen Jim Campbell and Bob Severns, are well known by those who pay attention to city politics. Over the years Campbell and Severns have expressed their views on a wide variety of subjects, from guns in city parks to the placement of the sewage treatment plant.
Voters had a chance to listen to mayoral candidates Bob Severns, a city councilman, and Martha Yount, a retired businesswoman, during a forum Thursday night organized by the League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island and Sno-Isle Libraries.
With its constant flow of back and forth television attack ads, bitter retorts, and campaign websites that seem to focus more on opponents than goals, the race for the U.S. Congressional District 2 seat between incumbent Democrat Rick Larsen and Republican John Koster has gotten particulary nasty.
