Newcastle resident Mark Greene is running for the House of Representatives to represent Newcastle in the 41st District, Position 2.

However, he will be embarking on a write-in campaign, as 217 of the 574 signatures he submitted to King County Elections were rejected.

Those who wish to file for candidacy must either collect signatures or pay a filing fee. The fee is 1 percent of the annual salary of position for which the candidate is running, but candidates who instead wish to collect signatures must collect one signature for each dollar of the filing fee.

Greene was required to submit 471 signatures, and of the 217 that were rejected, 98 were rejected because the signers were not registered voters, 82 were rejected because the signers were not from the 41st District and 37 were rejected because the signatures did not match those on voting registrations.

Greene kicked off his campaign June 20. He said he will focus his campaign on jobs and the environment. He is also in the process of creating a campaign website.
