Incumbents Carmody and DePinto handily ahead
The Yelm Community Blog declares the two challengers for Yelm Council Position 2 and Position 6 handily defeated by incumbents Carmody and DePinto. The challengers were “protest” candidates who were not well prepared nor even understood the rules for residency requirements in the city limits for one year prior to the election, covered here previously. If Candidates Cameron Jayne and Matthew McLellan are truly serious about serving the citizens of Yelm, they should volunteer for citizen committees and get some expoerience.
The Position 1 Blair – Curry race is too close to call, with 338 for Blair vs. 346 for council incumbent Curry.
