how long are their terms and who all is up for re-election next time? seems they are staggered for some reason. 2 yr terms?

folks need to be thinking of running and announce early.

with all the failed leadership, lawsuits, medic one and voter shafting, upcoming pool deal, maybe some will do the right thing and not re run if they finally have some opposition. most have been there way to long, failed us, and we need some new leadership.
it's not that hard to serve - just do the right things that the average person wants done - not the special interests and gobs.

The city council has 4 year terms, with 3 members for election every 2 years.

I know the rumor is going around that Keith Sloan will be running for mayor, but last I heard he wasn't sure if he'd be in a position to run for Mayor in 2014 but is looking at a council seat. Just what I've heard.

and he plays power broker with chamber funds, pretending that he does something. No one wants him there, but he has his claws dug in deep. Last year he tried to make it illegal to pass handbills in town...what a blatant attempt to force advertising through his radio, or through his cronies at the SH.

Yes, Pocahontas has 3 wards with 2 council members from each and one of them is up for election every 2 years. The three people up for reelection in 2014 will be
Rob Olvey (Ward 1)
Tim Scott (Ward 3)
Russel Winebaugh (Ward 2)

Council members represent only one ward on the city council but are elected by the entire city. The ward boundaries can be found at this link http://www.cityofpocahontas.com/City_Ordiance... or you can go to the city clerks office for a better map of it.
