A Sequim School Board candidate who advanced to the general election despite suspending her campaign in June should not accept the position if she wins in November, a state agency said.

Kristi Schmeck, a candidate for an at-large position, signed and submitted a statement of termination of campaign for the state Public Disclosure Commission on June 4, said Kim Bradford, the PDC’s deputy director.

Schmeck attempted to withdraw her candidacy after filing week in mid-May, but because she missed the May 24 deadline to officially withdraw, she advanced to the Nov. 2 general election when she was the top vote-getter in a four-person race, Clallam County Elections Office officials said.
