Kilgore, Sackett in lead for school board; Baylor closing in

Aug 04, 2017

Early results from the primary election show Deborah Kilgore and Cindy Sackett leading the race for the District 4 director position in the Edmonds School District.

As of 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, Lynnwood resident Kilgore had 9733 votes, or 44 percent of the total. Edmonds resident Sackett was second with 6,097 votes, or 27.77 percent. Cathy Baylor, of Lynnwood, was third with 6,086, or 27.61 percent.

The top two finishers will face off in the general election Nov. 7.

The candidates are all seeking elected office for the first time. Incumbent director Susan Phillips decided not to run for re-election in District 4, which includes Edmonds schools.

Incumbent David Chan – the subject of a public rebuke after he was caught making racist comments – was leading the vote for Position 3 with Fire District 1, which serves Edmonds. He’s tallied 6,379 votes, or 43 percent. Challengers are Michael Ellis, with 2,557, or 17 percent; P. Bret Chiafalo with 2,367, 16 percent; Brandon Richards had 2,123, 13 percent; and Brandy Donaghy with 1,598, 11 percent.

Only voters within the boundaries of the fire district elect commissioners. Edmonds, which contracts with FD1, does not fall within the boundaries of the district.

Official election results will be certified Aug. 15.
