Separated by only 44 votes in the race for Snoqualmie City Council, Position 6, incumbent Sean Sundwall was certified as the election winner Tuesday with just 1.3 percent more votes than his opponent, Monica Lowney.

Theirs was by far the closest race to be counted in the Nov. 7 general election, which saw an overall voter turnout of nearly 43 percent.

In most races, voters returned the incumbents to their offices, but not in either of the two contests for seats on the Snoqualmie Valley School Board.

District 1 incumbent Tavish MacLean lost to challenger Melissa Johnson by 2.3 percent in the final results and incumbent Marci Busby, District 4, lost to Gary Fancher by 5 percent.

All North Bend incumbents and all but one Snoqualmie incumbent will be among those taking the oath of office in January, too.

Countywide, most incumbents are also returning to their seats, except for Sheriff John Urquhart, who trailed his opponent, Mitzi Johanknecht, 13.5 percent.

Snoqualmie Mayor – Matt Larson 2,144, 58 percent; Fuzzy Fletcher 1,569, 42 percent;
