SEQUIM –– Saying his opponent, Michael Howe, is “exactly the kind of candidate that any parent could hope for,” Craig Stevenson explained Monday his withdrawal from the race to represent District 2 on the Sequim School Board.

Stevenson said he filed as a candidate last week to try to keep a parent in the position currently held by Board President Virginia O’Neill, who decided not to seek another term.

“Craig was very gracious. He’s a great guy,” Howe said Monday.

Howe is now the only candidate for the post.

John Clark Yeo had filed, but after a review of his residency showed he did not live in the district. Yeo refiled for the at-large seat held by incumbent Beverly Horan, who is running for a re-election.

Horan and Yeo will face off in the Nov. 6 general election.
