The Minnesota Primary Election will be held Aug. 14. At that time voters will narrow the pool down to four. The two open seats up for election are currently held by Weisensel and Matt Kearney.

Matt Kearney was appointed by the city council to the seat after Kurt Bills won a Minnesota House of Representatives seat in 2010.

Both seats are four year terms. The council is made up of four members and the mayor.
