Several already considering city council runs

"As election results rolled in Tuesday night, the conversation at a party for Silverdale incorporation supporters quickly turned to city council races.“We’re over the election – we’re all talking about city council now,” said Citizens for Silverdale President Richard Sheak. Incorporation proponents David Quick, Sam Hadley, Jim Kendall and Sheak all said they are considering running for city council seats. But none was ready to make an outright declaration of candidacy.Many speculated about others bidding for council seats, and conceded the race has barely even begun.“I got permission from my wife to run last week,” joked Sheak. Quick voiced a similar sentiment. He entered the incorporation campaign late in the game as the Citizens for Silverdale Website designer, a position that opened up not longer after the group’s hasty formation six weeks ago.“I haven’t been very involved here and I have to decide whether I’m going to go for it or go back into hiding,” said five-year Silverdale resident Quick.Also mulling a run for office is Kendall, co-owner of local Internet service provider Telebyte Northwest and president of the pro-incorporation group Silverdale-Now. “I’m considering it, but I still haven’t made any decisions about it,” he said.“This is a real opportunity for the people of Silverdale to step up to the plate and make things good,” said Silverdale-Now co-founder Ron Perkerewicz, referring to the city council hopefuls."
