Snohomish County voters will elect two members to open seats on the County Council today, and decide whether to keep veteran Dave Somers for a third consecutive term.
Republican Ken Klein faces Democrat Bill Blake, and Democrat Terry Ryan faces Republican Robert Reedy. The winners will replace John Koster and Dave Gossett, who couldn’t run for re-election because of the county’s consecutive-term limit.
Somers, a Democrat, faces Republican Chris Vallo, who hasn’t previously held public office.
