Councilman Matt Larson held a comfortable lead in the Snoqualmie mayor’s race at midnight in early returns.
The three candidates — all residents of Snoqualmie Ridge — were vying to replace outgoing Mayor Fuzzy Fletcher, who has held office for the past eight years and will retire in December after completing his current term.
Larson, 44, is a residential architect and stay-at-home dad who was elected to the City Council in 2001. His priorities include fiscal responsibility, public safety and growth control. Larson said he’s interested in looking at potential uses for the old Snoqualmie Falls Lumber site, such as putting in a waste-to-energy plant, to boost city coffers.
James “Greg” Harrelson, 43, a group program manager at Microsoft, is a political newbie. He advocates revitalizing downtown businesses to give Snoqualmie Falls visitors a reason to spend time in the city.
