Hoogendam Files For West U. Council
Brian Hoogendam has filed to run for a West U. council position. He joins current councilmen Bob Fry and Chuck Guffey as well as George Boehme, Steven Segal and Philip Bryant on the ballot.
Today is the last day to file for the election, in which all seats are open. Current Councilwoman Phyllis Cohen in ineligible for reelection, and Councilman Michael Talianchich recently resigned citing health issues. Council will likely not replace him, waiting instead for the May 9 General Election.
So far, current Mayor Bob Kelly is running for his second term unopposed.
Applications and accompanying documents may be obtained from the city secretary’s office in the Municipal Building, 3800 University Blvd.
The General Election will be held on May 9. Voters will vote for mayor and four council members to serve a two-year term of office. Each position is at-large.
