The Cowlitz County Auditor is out with a reminder that Candidate Filing Week starts next Monday. 57 local offices are on this year’s ballot, including city council, school board and port commission positions. Several fire districts also have commission posts on the ballot, along with cemetery district, the Beacon Hill Sewer District, Woodland Swim and Rec and the Lexington Flood Zone Commission. Would-be candidates can file in person at the Cowlitz County Elections Office from 8:30 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday of next week. Mail-in filing is already open, and candidates can also file on-line, next Monday through Friday. We’ve already got one person announcing his candidacy, as J. D. Rosetti announces his intention to run for the Longview School Board seat currently held by James Campbell.
