Chan drops out of state Senate race

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Sep 9, 2013 at 12:06PM

Republican candidate and Mercer Island resident, Valerie Chan, withdrew from the state Senate race for the 41st Legislative District on Thursday, June 12. Chan said she withdrew for family reasons. Three Islanders had filed to run for the vacant Senate position during the official candidate filing period earlier this month. Chan and Bob Baker had filed as Republicans while four-term state representative Fred Jarret is running as a Democrat. Senator Brian Weinstein announced last December that he would not seek a second term and would return to practicing law. With just two candidates on the ballot, there will no longer be a primary for this contest.

Backyard pools and spas are the most common site for drowning of small children, but a recent Washington state code requires homes with pools and spas to have proper barriers for children. Beginning July of last year, all new private pools and spas in Washington must have barriers. The regulation applies only to new pools and spas, but these safer standards are recommended for older pools and spas as well.
