Silverdale incorporation fails

SILVERDALE — Initial returns from the special election showed the incorporation effort failing 69.85 percent to 30.15 percent. It’s the fourth time Silverdale incorporation proponents have been dealt disappointment, this time by voters who made it overwhelmingly clear they don’t want the county’s commercial hub to become the state’s newest city.

Incorporation supporters said Tuesday night that they weren’t sure if they’ll be part of a future effort to incorporate. Biegenwald guessed it would be a “long, long time” before another effort materializes, noting 14 years passed between the past two efforts. State law requires proponents wait three years from the date of the election before the measure can be considered again if it receives 40 percent or less of the total vote.
