Three drop from council race
Three people have dropped out of the race for two open city council seats, narrowing the field down to 26. Jon Burt, Todd Benz and Todd Petersen all withdrew from the election by the 5 p.m. deadline Thursday.
For voters that means they will have a big pool to choose from for the two council seats currently held by Phillip Sterner and Mike Baxter.
Phillip Sterner is running for the House of Representatives 37 B seat so he will not seek reelection to the council. Mike Baxter is amongst the 26 candidates for the other seat.
The top two vote getters at the polls during the General Election Nov. 4 will win the seats.
