Jason Sturek

At least two longtime members of boards have indicated they will not be running again in 2018. 

Leonard Peters will have served 16 years on the Thurston County Board of Supervisors when his term ends early next year. He not be throwing his hat into the ring again in District 1.

“It has been a pleasure to serve this district for that period of time. I have many times in the past 16 years told people that District 1 has the most understanding people of any district in the county,” Peters said. “Thank you for your support and the opportunity to serve.

Glen Meyer of Pender has filed for Peters’ seat and is the lone to do so thus far.

Dan Wichman of rural Pender will not be running again for school board.

“We have a really good board. But it’s time to let someone else bring a fresh perspective,” Wichman said.

J.J. Maise has already filed to run again, while as of Tuesday board president Matt Peters had not done so.

County office holders who have so far filed for re-election include Tammy Moore (clerk), Robin Christiansen (treasurer), Susan Schrieber (assessor) and Gina Roth (clerk of the district court).

Notable battles include sheriff and county attorney. As of press time, sheriff Shelly Perez had not yet filed, nor had Tammy Maul-Bodlak.

Non-incumbents have until March 1 to file.
