District Court election likely to cause vacancy in Edmonds

With Edmonds Municipal Court Judge Douglas Fair running for a position on the South County District Court, the city of Edmonds could be looking for a new judge.

With Fair running unopposed, an Edmonds vacancy is almost certain.

Fair says that he would stay on the job in Edmonds until he began his term as district court judge Jan. 12.

That would leave 48 days after the Nov. 25 certification of election results for Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling to nominate a municipal court judge and the City Council to confirm him or her. The appointed municipal court judge would serve through the November 2015 election, when voters would choose someone to fill the last two years of the term that Fair won in 2013.
