Print Article

BELOIT — The list of city council candidates for three vacancies has been finalized for the April Election, and includes none of the incumbents.

City Council President David Luebke, as well as current councilors Marilyn Sloniker and Regina Hendrix will not be running for their seats, despite their terms expiring this year, according to City Clerk Lori Stottler. Candidates initially had until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to file their nomination signatures at City Hall, but since to Luebke and Hendrix not officially submitting their intentions not to run, the deadline was extended to 5 p.m. on Friday.

Six candidates have turned in their paperwork. The list of candidates who have applied and had their signatures approved includes: Clinton Anderson, Sherry Blakeley, Nancy V. Forbeck, Jeanette Hansen, Ana Kelly and Rose Richard. A public drawing will be held on at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the City Clerk's office to determine the order in which the candidates’ names will appear on the ballot. The City Council portion of the ballot will not be included on the Feb. 21 primary ballot, as the number of candidates did not exceed twice the number of open positions.

The spring election will be held April 4 and newly-elected council members will take office on April 18.
