PORT ORCHARD — Three of Port Orchard’s City Council incumbents swept aside their challengers to win re-election to another term, based on election-night results tallied by the Kitsap County Election Division.

Small-business owner Mark Trenary also easily won election to the City Council’s At-Large position, 56.76% to 43.24%, over opponent Shaun Williams.

Jay Rosapepe, the council’s at-large member, won his race to a four-year term to the Position 2 seat, 62.31% to 37.69%, over challenger Randy Jones. In the Position 3 race, incumbent Scott Diener won re-election by defeating Heidi Fenton, 61.23% to 38.77%. And incumbent Fred Chang defeated Kaylen O’Connor, 60.44% to 38.77%.

Races for SKSD Board of Director seats

In the two races for seats on the embattled South Kitsap School District’s Board of Directors, Brian Pickard defeated Anna Schroeder, 67.66% to 32.34%, for the District 3 seat. Jeffrey (Jefe) Wilson won the District 4 seat by outgaining challenger Gregg Anderson, 67.52% to 32.58%.

The two races for Board of Director seats were to replace incumbent members Rebecca Diehl and Liz Sebren, who chose not to run again. A replacement for board president Eric Gattenby, who resigned his seat last month, will be made by the board in December.

In a high-profile countywide race, Proposition 2 — the Kitsap 911 Emergency Communication Systems and Facilities Sales and Use Tax — was approved by a 64.66% to 35.34% margin. The proposition authorizes an additional one-tenth of one percent sales and use tax to provide funds for Kitsap 911 to acquire new equipment to upgrade its emergency communication system.

Proposition 1, which proposed creating an Office of the Kitsap County Medical Examiner, was approved by a 64.66% to 35.34% margin. The measure calls for replacement of the Kitsap County Medical Examiner’s office.

Kyle Joyce outdistanced Mike Smith, 53.75% to 46.25%, for the Position 4 seat on the South Kitsap Fire and Rescue Commission.

In the race for the Position 2 commissioner seat on the Port of Manchester’s commission, Lary Coppola defeated Christopher R. Binns, 69.94% to 30.06%. Bob Ballard, running for the Position 3 seat, ran unopposed.

James E. Strode defeated Sabina Fiore, 64.21% to 35.79%, in the Manchester Water District Position 3 race.
