Coursey concedes mayoral race to Coston




WASHOUGAL — Molly Coston will be the next mayor of Washougal. Her competitor, Dan Coursey, conceded the race on his Facebook page and thanked everyone who supported him during the campaign.

“Currently, there is a 344-vote difference and we probably won’t be able to cover that with the few ballots left to count,” Coursey wrote on his page shortly after noon Thursday.

“I have called Molly Coston and congratulated her as Washougal’s new mayor. It was a hard-fought campaign on both sides, but I look forward to working with Molly, and for great things to happen here in Washougal under her leadership.”
