Port Ludlow: Six vie for Village Council seats

PORT LUDLOW — Six candidates are vying for five spots up for grabs on the Village Council this September.

Ballots, mailed to property owners last week, are due back by Sept. 28.

Village Council President Sally Smith, who has headed the council for most of the last five years, is not seeking re-election.

“I think it’s time to freshen up the group,” she said Tuesday. “It’s healthy to rotate (leadership) or else it becomes stagnant.”

Councilman Howard Slack has also decided not to seek re-election.

But three incumbents and three newcomers are seeking two-year terms on the non-governmental council.
