Interest light early in council filing period
Through the first week of filing, just two candidates had filed to run for Rosemount city council in this fall's general election.
Maila Ellefson was the first to file. She submitted her affidavit of candidacy on May 22, the first day of the filing period. This is the third time Ellefson has run for city council.
Jeff Weisensel was the only one of the two incumbents up for election to submit by the time this issue went to press Wednesday morning. He filed on May 23.
