Two Board of Education candidates have now qualified for the November ballot ahead of Wednesday’s 5 p.m. deadline extension. Lindsay Thomasson and Ruchi Medhekar have both submitted all of their paperwork to run for the two open seats on the school board.
As of Tuesday, August 16, three prospective candidates have pulled paperwork but have not yet qualified. They are: Avnish Patel (took nomination papers out on Aug. 4), Shirley Hooi (took nomination papers on Aug. 12), and Christine Rennels (took nomination papers out on Aug. 16).
The nomination period for seats on the city council has closed. Five candidates have qualified to appear on the November ballot. They are: Betsy Smegal Andersen, Sunny Bostrom-Fleming, Jennifer Long, Bridget McInerney Harris, Jeanne Solnordal, and Tom Ramsey. (Avnish Patel did not return paperwork prior to the deadline.)
