Meeting set to help pick Angel’s successor

Republicans in the 26th Legislative District are set to meet Wednesday, Dec. 4, to help select a replacement for State Rep. Jan Angel, who recently won a seat the state Senate.

The meeting will be at the Givens Community Center in Port Orchard.

Republican party precinct committee officers will provide Kitsap and Pierce county officials a list of three names in which to choose a successor.

The commissioners and council will meet at a later date to select the candidate to fill Angel’s unexpired term.

Kitsap County Republican Party Chairman Chris Tibbs said that Wednesday, Nov. 27, is the deadline for candidates to apply for the position.

Tibbs said Wednesday was the first day for interested persons to apply. He said he received emails from former congressional candidate Jesse Young and real estate broker Spencer Hutchins declaring interest in the position.

Port Orchard councilwoman Cindy Lucarelli said Wednesday she has filed an application with a vetting committee to be a candidate to fill Angel’s seat.

Former Pierce County Council member Terry Lea, former congressional candidate Jesse Young and Adam Berman have been mentioned as possible successors.
