Five elected seats face general election Nov. 4

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 6:47PM

By CARRINA STANTON Staff Writer POULSBO — Elected positions across North Kitsap will be decided by voters during the general election Nov. 4. Poulsbo area voters will join residents across the county in determining the fate of Kitsap Transit’s Proposition 1. If passed, the measure will raise sales and the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax to support a new fleet of Kitsap Transit foot ferries. Four city council positions and one Port of Poulsbo seat are also up for grabs — although only three of the five are contested races. Incumbents Mike Regis and Jim Henry are unopposed for Poulsbo City Council positions 1 and 3 respectively. For Poulsbo City Council position 2, incumbent Jackie Aitchison faces former councilwoman Connie Lord. Aitchison has served on the council since 1991. Lord previously held council position 7 from 1998-2001. Incumbent Jeff McGinty faces Elizabeth Hutley in the race for Poulsbo City Council position 4. McGinty has held his position since 1991 and has been Deputy Mayor since 1999. Hutley has been a Poulsbo resident for about one year and previously worked in Marine Science and hospital management. For the Port of Poulsbo, sitting commissioner Glenn Gilbert has been challenged by Gary Hoskins for position 2. Gilbert was appointed to fill a vacancy on the commission in 2000 and then ran for and won the unexpired term in 2001. Hoskins is currently the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce interim director and a former officer of the Historic Downtown Poulsbo Association board. Additional voter pamphlet information is available on the Internet at www.vote.wa.gov or by calling the Kitsap County Auditor’s Office Elections Division at (360) 337-7128.
