West U. residents will have an opportunity to vote in an entirely new set off council members on May 9, or could go with a mix of new and returning members. Current Mayor Bob Kelly is running unopposed, and will retake the helm for another two years.
Current Councilwoman Phyllis Cohen has hit her term limit, and is ineligible to run again Councilman Michael Talianchich resigned earlier this year due to illness. The remaining council members – Chuck Guffey and Bob Fry – are running to serve a second term.
