Today Last Day To File For West U. Council
The deadline to file for West U. City Council is 5 p.m. today, March 9. All council positions and mayor are open for reelection. Current Councilman Michael Talianchich, who previously said he may run again for council or for the top spot, resigned last week citing medical issues.
Council will likely not appoint a replacement, waiting instead for the May 9 election to fill the vacancy.
All current council members other than Phyllis Cohen are eligible for reelection. Councilmen Bob Fry and Chuck Guffey have filed to run to run for reelection and current Mayor Bob Kelly is also running for a second term, so far unopposed.
George Boehme, Steven Segal and Philip Bryant have filed to run for council positions, and Sunny Brandtner has picked up a candidate packet but not filed.
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.
