The first day of election filing week brought out 76 candidates for town, city, school board and special district offices in Pierce County. Most of the office-seekers are unopposed at this point – and a majority of the nearly 200 offices up for election have no candidates so far.
Among contested races so far is a seat on the Tacoma School Board being vacated by Jim Dugan. Both Scott Heinze and Betsy Elgar have filed for that position.
Candidates have until Friday to file. For more information, see the Pierce County Election website.
Below is a list of candidate filings as of 5 p.m.
