Just got off the phone with State Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale. Speaking via hands-free mobile phone on his drive home from the grueling budget session in Olympia. Ericksen said he expects to decide by next week if he’ll be a candidate for Whatcom County Executive.
“I think there’s a pretty good chance,” Ericksen said.
He plans to spend the weekend relaxing with his family before making his decision.
He added that he was surprised when the incumbent, Pete Kremen, bowed out of the race.
