Candidate pulls out of Bainbridge Island City Council race

The final two candidates for the November ballot in the race for Bainbridge Island City Council District 2 North Ward seat may be settled before the Aug. 6 Primary Election.

Although three candidates filed to run for the position — incumbent Councilman Kol Medina, Kevin Fetterly and Ashley Mathews — Mathews has reportedly said she is withdrawing from the race.

Mathews was a no-show at a Wednesday candidates forum at Bainbridge Island City Hall.

The League of Women Voters of Kitsap, the hosts for the forum, said before the start of the forum that Mathews had informed them that she was pulling out of the race and would not attend.

Mathews did not respond to an earlier email from the Review.

The two candidates with the most votes in August’s Primary will advance to November’s General Election.

Kitsap County Elections Division said ballots for the primary will be mailed July 19.
