Rutledge switches from hospital commissioner race to face Yamamoto


The last candidate to be unopposed for Edmonds City Council now has competition. Long-time community volunteer Alvin Rutledge had originally filed to run for the Hospital Commission, but withdrew just before 5 p.m. Friday and instead filed to run against Frank Yamamoto for City Council Position 6.

Rutledge, a candidate for various offices over the years, is known for his diligent attendance at local government meetings. A retired transfer and moving company owner/operator, Rutledge is a 24-year Edmonds resident who lives in the Lake Ballinger neighborhood. He’s a member of Friends of Edmonds Library, Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation Snohomish County, Brightwater Task Force and the Save Our Log Cabin committee.
