Candidate filing week is quickly approaching, and several local political seats will be up for re-election.
Filing week is Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 10. The primary election will be held Tuesday, Aug. 16. The top two candidates in each race will move on to the Tuesday, Nov. 8 General Election.
The filing fee is 1 percent of the office’s annual salary. Positions that receive no salary have no required filing fee. Positions on the Camas and Washougal City Councils have a one-year residency requirement.
Camas City Council members earn $6,000 per year, while the Camas mayor earns $15,600; Washougal City Council members earn $6,000 annually, and Port of C-W commissioners earn $4,200 per year. All school board positions are volunteer, and earn no compensation.
Camas Mayor Paul Dennis, whose second term in office expires at the end of the year, said Monday that he plans to resign from the City Council on an as-of-yet undermined date in the near future. Dennis was chosen to serve as the new economic development director of the Camas-Washougal Economic Development Association.
