While Mayor Casey Tanaka, 36, and Councilwoman Barbara Denny, 49, face off in the mayoral race this November, four others are competing for two council seats.
The mayoral race features a widely expected match-up. In the council race, Councilwoman Carrie Downey is termed out, but incumbent Mike Woiwode is seeking a second term.
Woiwode, 65, is an engineer, who runs his own consulting business. The challengers are:
- Richard Bailey, 26, a financial analysist with Goodrich Aerospace;
- Susan Keith, 70, a community volunteer;
- Jean Roesch, who did not give her age, is an educator who currently serves on Southwestern College's board.
Patch will have more details on the candidates, including their reasons for running, Tuesday.
The ballot also will feature a proposal .
