— With issues ranging from strengthening the county’s economic base to balancing vacation rental inventory in an area inhabited year-round by tourists and second-home owners — not to mention year-round residents — two of three seats on the San Juan County Council are up for election next month. The incumbent faces a challenger in one race, and two first-timers are vying for another.
