Multiple candidates in Orcas races; only 1 each for Lopez, Shaw and San Juan Islands positions

According to San Juan County's Election's web page, the only contested local races in the 2019 elections are on Orcas Island. Seventy-one candidates filed for 56 positions. 

In what is sure to surprise many, none of the incumbents in the four positions open on the San Juan County Public Hospital District #1 (San Juan Island) have signed up to run for re-election. The candidates who have each filed for one of the open seats are Gail Leschine-Seitz, Everett Clary, Kyle Loring and Trish Lehman. 

All four seats up for election on the Port of Orcas Commission have two people running. Two of the three seats open on the Orcas Island School Board have two candidates each. One of the three seats on the Orcas Fire District has two candidates and one of the two seats up for election on Eastsound Sewer and Water District has two candidates.

For state senator, the candidates are Liz Lovelett who was appointed to replace Kevin Ranker; Daniel Miller, Carrie Blackwood, Michael Petrish, Greta Aitken, and Rud Browne. There will need to be a primary election to winnow the field down to two.
