Lake Forest Park will have a primary for mayor now that Stan Lippmann has joined Councilman Dwight Thompson and former Councilwoman Mary Jane Goss as candidates.

It will be the only Lake Forest Park or Shoreline office on the primary ballot.

Any non-partisan office with three or more candidates appears on the Aug. 16 primary ballot. Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the Nov. 8 general-election ballot.

Lippmann, Goss and Thompson are seeking to replace Mayor Dave Hutchison, who announced last year that he would not seek a fifth four-year term.

The top two vote getters in the primary advance to the November ballot.
