The Nov. 5 general election so far favors the challengers, with an exception—the Snoqualmie Valley School District board race between Marci Busby and David Spring. However, first-week returns saw challengers in the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital district play upsetter to incumbents, while newcomer Heather Munden was beating former councilmember Terry Sorenson by a wide margin.
Early results from the Tuesday, Nov. 3, general election showed the Eyman-sponsored initiative targeting property taxes looking weak, while a statewide measure concerning responsibilities of state-registered domestic partners showed a small lead for approval.
Initiative Measure 1033, which would have capped government revenues at inflation and population growth, was in trouble, with 55 percent 'no' vote statewide, according to the Washington Secretary of State's office. That move had drawn criticism as an unfair burden for local governments. The city councils of Carnation and Snoqualmie and the Snoqualmie Valley School Board passed resolutions urging voters to turn it down.
