Filing closed yesterday (March 1st) at 5:00 pm for places 1, 3, 5, and the mayor's spot. All have incumbents except for Place 5. Michelle Smith, elected in 2011, is not seeking re-election.
Place 1 - David White
Place 2 - Jim Pruitt
Place 3 - Bennie Daniels
Place 5 - Open
Mayor - David Sweet

Place 2 was temporarily filled by an appointment when Mark Russo resigned last fall. The Charter calls for such vacancies to be filled at next regular council election.

Can we start a civil, factual discussion along the following lines?
In addition to the incumbents listed, who has filed?
Do you have knowledge of the candidates' strengths and background?

This just in......There was only one candidate for Place 5: Scott Milder. No one filed in opposition to the incumbents in the other races. So there will be no city council elections in 2013.
Discussion closed.

Maybe not. Overall, this is one of the best groups we've had in several years and the mayor does a great job of handling the meetings and moving the discussions along. I've not witnessed any of the personal animosity, public name calling, profanity and near-physical confrontations that happened in the past.
