Three Rivers Hospital bond headed for defeat


OKANOGAN – The $72 million bond measure for a new Three
Rivers Hospital in Brewster is facing an uphill fight with preliminary vote counts from both Douglas and Okanogan counties against the measure leading supporters by nearly 600 votes.

Okanogan County voters are 1,661 opposed to 1,163 in favor, while Douglas County shows 275 opposed and 184 in favor. With an estimated 3,300 votes remaining to be counted between both counties the margin of defeat that needs to be overcome is between 17 and 18 percent.


In other races, the one for mayor of Mansfield appears to be all but decided with appointed incumbent Clint Wall outpolling challenger Kris Neff 52 votes (69.3 percent) to 23 votes (30.67 percent).


The incumbent also appears to be winning in the race for Brewster city council Position 5 with Don Childers leading challenger Emmanuel Hurtado by 14 votes, 78-64.


Sergio Orozco running unopposed will be the new mayor of the City of Bridgeport. Former mayor Janet Conklin running for city council Position 4 trails Paul Anson by 23 votes, 78-55.
