Clark County certifies Aug. 3 primary election count

By , Columbian Metro Editor

Sean Boyle will face T.R. “Randy” Williams in November after a certified tally of the Aug. 3 primary election preserved his four-vote lead over Janice Fowler for Position No. 3 on the La Center City Council.

Williams was the top vote-getter in that race, with 359 votes.

The top two vote-getters in these and other races will stand for the Nov. 2 general and special election, which, in addition to numerous elective offices, includes a number of proposed amendments to the Clark County Charter.

Voters will also have the chance to vote on a proposal by the Clark County Council to institute a 0.1 percent sales and use tax to fund county juvenile detention facilities and jails through March 31, 2032, freeing up funds that the county said it would use to pay for law enforcement body-worn cameras and additional related expenses.

The November election will also include a levy measure for Battle Ground Public Schools, sales tax increases for transportation benefit districts in Ridgefield and Woodland, and to move Woodland from a council-mayor to a council-manager system of government.
