There are ballots left to be counted, however the final count will not likely change the outcome of this election. It appears that Eric Richey will be the next Whatcom County Prosecutor. I phoned Mr. Richey yesterday to wish him every success in implementing the many changes that we both talked about over the course of this campaign.
While I am disappointed in the outcome, I am incredibly proud of the positive campaign that we ran which was focused on the issues important to me (and to so many members of our community) with the very best team that we could have assembled. Thank you to everyone who supported us during this journey. The outcome is disappointing, but I am richer for the experience and hopeful for the future of Whatcom County.
