Steve Lacy may be leaving as Mayor of East Wenatchee, but he’s not ready to retire from public service. Lacy filed this week as a candidate for Commissioner of the Douglas County Sewer District. He will challenge incumbent commissioner, Greg Peterson in the November election. Peterson was appointed last summer to fill the unexpired term of Commissioner Mike McCourt. McCourt resigned the position after he pleaded guilty to child sex abuse charges. Lacy is stepping down after serving as East Wenatchee’s Mayor since 1998. He says he’s ready to move on to a new challenge.
