Are you interested in making a difference in your community by running for public office?
Candidate filing for elected positions begins at 9:00 am on Monday, May 13th, for the 2019 ballot.
Candidates must also register with the Public Disclosure Commission within two weeks of starting their campaign.
Candidates may file online until 4:00 pm on Friday, May 17th. In-person filing is available at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office May 13 through May 17 during business hours.
According to a Snohomish County Elections news release, “188 offices are available for filing including most county administrative offices, county council seats in districts 2 and 3, city and town mayor and council positions, fire district commissioners, school board directors, and water and sewer district commissioners.”
Five Mill Creek City Council positions are up for grabs this year.
Here is the list of Mill Creek residents who have indicated their intention to run for city council by already registering with the Public Disclosure Commission:
- Stephanie Vignal (appointed 2019) - Incumbent Position 2.
- Vince Cavaleri (elected 2015) - Incumbent Position 5.
- Carmen Fisher - Challenger Positon 5.
- Mike Todd (elected 2007) - Incumbent Position 6.
- Mark Bond (elected 2004) - Incumbent Position 7.
It’s likely that Mill Creek City Councilmember John Steckler, Position 1, will run for election as well. He was appointed to the city council in 2018.
