Petersen-Di Guilio race set for November; Perry to face either Sawyer or Ripley

PORT ANGELES – City Council incumbent Edna Petersen will face off against Dan Di Guilio in the November general election. Don Perry will square off against either Paul D. Sawyer or Peter Ripley for another City Council seat.

Perry, Port Angeles Heritage Tours owner, received 1,842 votes, or 52.82 percent of the votes counted so far in Tuesday’s primary election.

Sawyer received 662 votes, or 18.98 percent, to Ripley’s 648 votes, or 18.58 percent.

Petersen had 1,580 votes, or 43.86 percent of the ballots counted so far.

Di Guilio captured 1,297 votes, or 36.01 percent.

Clallam County planner Donella Pratt had 725 votes, or 20.13 percent.

“I can’t tell you how great it feels,” Perry said.

“I feel so honored and humbled . . . I’m honest to goodness tickled.”

Petersen said:

“I think I have to work really hard now. I’m hoping that with my summer season slowdown, I can devote more time to the campaign.

“I’ll be working really hard. I’m really pleased with the results, but I know I still have to work really hard.

“I’m just going to get out more, not that I haven’t before. As I’ve said before I love the job.”

Petersen is owner of Necessities and Temptations gift shop on the Port Angeles waterfront.
