FORKS — Forks Mayor Tim Fletcher will serve another four-year term after winning a huge margin over opponent Stephen Wright.

The tally as of Wednesday was 330 votes for Fletcher and 55 votes for Wright.

Fletcher, who won his first term four years ago, has said he plans to continue to work to bring new business and support existing businesses and to bring back and keep timber-related jobs.

Wright, a former resident of Oklahoma, was endorsed by the Green Party of Washington and campaigned, among other things, to use the City of Forks’ vacant land to house agriculture education opportunities and hemp production.

He said that would increase revenue for the City of Forks while adding educational opportunities.

Neither were available for comment on Wednesday.
