Edmonds City Councilmember D.J. Wilson, who is also a candidate for the position, said he will be sharing his list of endorsements next week, but meanwhile his campaign is focusing on his accomplishments, including his work founding the Lake Ballinger Forum, co-founding the Anti-Brightwater Sewer Plant Coalition, and serving as a member of SNO-COM board of directors and the Stevens Hospital Stakeholder Advisory Committee and as past president of the Public Education Foundation, plus his service as a former Edmonds City Council president and on various city committees.
