Ed Garren, a family therapist who in 2008 ran unsuccessfully for former Commisioner Erik Sten's seat, is gearing up for the May 2010 primary election.
This time the Hayden Island activist is running
for the seat of Commissioner Dan Saltzman,
who has said he will wait until January to make an official announcement about his candidacy. Garren filed his paperwork today, his mother's 97th birthday. Garren says he's running because voters deserve choices.
"I have nothing against Dan," Garren says. "He's a good guy."
In 2008, Garren finished last in a five-candidate field with 4 percent
of the vote. Nick Fish won with 61 percent.
The other candidate in the race so far is Spencer Burton
