City Council write-in winner still unknown

Votes not scheduled to be counted until next week


The winner of the write-in election for the Ward 1 Seat B seat on the Hillsboro City won’t be known until next week.

At this time, Washington County elections officials are not planning on counting the write-in names until Wednesday, Nov. 14. Although that could change, officials currently say they have need to complete processing all of the ballots that arrived for the Nov. 6 election. The office will also be closed on Monday for Veterans Day.

Incumbent Nenice Andrews could not run for re-election because of the city’s term limits. No one filed for the office by the deadline.

But four candidates announced write-in campaigns in the weeks leading up to he election. They are: Megan Braze, a lifelong Hillsboro resident and Oregon State University graduate; Trevon Jacobson, an Intel employee; Justin Lacche, chairman of the Washington County Civil Service Commission; and Mark Matson, a software engineer.

Whoever receives the most write-in votes is the winner, provided they meet all requirements to run for public office, live in the district and are willing to serve. If the winner is disqualified, the position will be declared vacant and the Hillsboro City Council will make the appointment.
