Tacoma School Board race still close

Only 56 votes separate two candidates in a primary race for Tacoma School Board, following Thursday’s ballot count by the Pierce County Auditor.

The race, between challenger Kim Washington and incumbent Kim Golding, will determine the second name on the November ballot in Position 5. Karen Vialle, a former Tacoma mayor and current Tacoma substitute teacher, won more than 51 percent of the vote in the primary race, securing a place on the November ballot. The race between Washington and Golding will determine Vialle’s opponent in the general election.

As of Thursday, Washington had just over 20 percent of the vote, and Golding more than 19 percent. Another count is scheduled Friday.
