Who's Running for City Council?
With three incumbents not running for re-election, there's an open field
Friday August 12 is the deadline for nominations to run for the Sebastopol City Council. However, if the incumbents do not file papers to run, then the deadline will be extended until August 17th.
Council Member Sarah Glade Gurney has already announced that she would not re-seek election. Council Member Una Glass confirmed that she is not running and Mayor Patrick Slayter reportedly is also not running again. Three of the five City Council seats will be open.
The prospective candidates for City Council so far, as listed here as of August 11, are:
Andrew J Levis
After the deadline, when the county registrar publishes the official list, we will follow up with the candidates to learn more about them and why they are running.
Note that with the extension all but a certainty, there’s a week left to file to run for the City Council.
