Auditor Weikel Endorses Elections Manager Garth Fell In County Auditor's Race

Auditor Carolyn Weikel has announced she will endorse Elections Manager Garth Fell in the race to succeed her as Snohomish County Auditor.  Auditor Weikel will be retiring at the end of the year.  The County Auditor position is subject to term limits and she cannot seek an additional term.


Weikel explained, “I have served as Auditor for the last 12 years.  I know what it takes to successfully lead the Auditor’s Office. It’s my responsibility to ensure the office continues to provide effective and efficient government services.  I want to assure voters that Garth is the best candidate for County Auditor. Garth has the experience, the interest and the passion to be a great County Auditor.”


Auditor Weikel has joined other county and community leaders to endorse Fell including former County Auditor Bob Terwilliger, former County Executive Bob Drewel, Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers, and many other county and local elected officials.  Additionally Fell has the support from a growing group of County Auditors from across the state.


Fell will not seek endorsement from any political party, maintaining his position as an independent administrator of elections.


Fell has administered elections in Washington State for 20 years, the last 12 as Snohomish County Elections Manager.  He also served as Recording Manager for seven years.  He and his team have been recognized nationally for best practices in mail ballot processing and voter outreach.


“For my entire career I have been committed to putting voters first.  It is my responsibility and mission to conduct fair, transparent and accountable elections. I have also been part of the County Auditor’s leadership team for the last 12 years.  I am extremely proud to be involved in an organization that excels in recording, licensing and animal-related government services.  I am honored to receive Auditor Weikel’s endorsement and I look forward to running a strong and positive campaign for County Auditor,” said Fell.
