Candidate withdrawals from Blaine City Council race

BLAINE, Wash. – A candidate for Blaine City Council has withdrawn from the race.

Doug Dahl says he didn’t realize he had to live in the city’s second ward for a year before becoming eligible to run for that city council seat.

Dahl has been living outside the Blaine city limits and only recently moved into town.

The Whatcom County Auditor says Dahl’s name will be removed from the August primary ballot and the local voter pamphlet.
