The Whatcom County Republican Party will endorse/support non-partisan candidates below for the November 7, 2017 General Election.
- Phil Morgan – Whatcom County Council District 1
- Eric Bostrom – City of Bellingham Council At Large
On a related note, the WCRP Precinct Committee Officers (PCO’s) in a divided vote (after considerable discussion pro and con), approved a resolution to support Proposition 2017-6 (the Whatcom County jail tax). Despite concerns about taxation and the many shortcomings of the proposition, the need to replace the jail facility related to safety concerns for staff and internees, took precedence. This recommendation will go on the Whatcom Republicans’ slate cards.
