Bill Hannan has beaten Corby Somerville for Port of Port Angeles commissioner.
Hannan’s lead widened from 305 ballots to 535 in vote counting Friday afternoon.
Only about 300 late-arriving mail ballots remain to be counted.
The contest between Somerville and Hannan for the six-year seat representing the Sequim area on the three-person Port commission was the most expensive — and most controversial — local race on this year’s ballot.
Hannan will succeed Jack Waud of Sequim, who did not seek re-election.The rest of this story appears appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News. Click on “Subscribe” to get the PDN delivered or mailed to your home or office.
