BRINNON — Only two votes separate candidates vying for the Position No. 2 seat on the Fire District No. 4 board.
After late-arriving, mail-in ballots were counted Friday, incumbent Kenneth McEdwards led R.A. “Bud” Schindler 227 votes to 225 votes in the closest race on the North Olympic Peninsula.
“People have been calling, wondering if I’ve heard anything,” Schindler said. “I’m not panicked — if I lose, it’s sort of a disappointment.”
McEdwards has not returned any calls seeking comment throughout the election process.
