POULSBO – Ricky Moon, a candidate in the Poulsbo mayor’s race, has a criminal history and has had financial troubles, court records show. When questioned about the incidents, Moon, a handyman challenging Mayor Becky Erickson for the city’s executive office, said he’s learned from his mistakes and said they’ve made him a better person. Fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest charges were filed against Moon in 1994, court documents show.
POULSBO – Becky Erickson has been managing one thing or the other for four decades, stretching back to a donut shop she supervised at age 19. Poulsbo’s mayor since 2010 is asking voters to add four more years of experience to her resume with a third term at City Hall. Challenging Erickson for the city’s executive office is a bold handyman who knows Poulsbo’s downtown buildings like the back of his hand. Ricky Moon wants a new face running the city, and he thinks he’s the man for the job.
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND – The island’s City Council will have at least two new faces in the new year, as just one of the races for three open seats has an incumbent candidate.

In the Central Ward, islanders will have a choice between a farmer and a retired incumbent councilman.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
