Residents of three area cities, Lecompton, McLouth and Oskaloosa, will elect new city council members Tuesday.
Three council members will be elected in each town.
Lecompton City Clerk Susie Hackathorn said today that only two names, incumbent Dorothy Shaner and newcomer Jeff Goodrick, will appear on the city's ballot. However Lecompton residents Leo Pollard, Sam Smith and Denvil Hackathorn, who currently serves on the council, are waging write-in campaigns for the positions, Hackathorn said.
Denvil Hackathorn intended to officially file his name in the election, but missed the noon, Jan. 23 filing deadline, the city clerk said.
Current council member Scott Campbell's term expires this year, but he did not file for re-election.
STELLA LUSE, McLouth city clerk, said this morning that the only incumbent seeking re-election is Kenneth Webb. Current council members Dorothy Scothorne and Olin Dalaba are not seeking re-election.
Also appearing on the McLouth ballot will be Rhea Connelly, Ralph Petesch, Ronald Foreshee and Katherine Brown. However, Brown has moved out of town and will not be able to serve if elected, Luse said.
IN OSKALOOSA, incumbents Gene Gunselman and Don Haynes are seeking re-election to their current council positions, said City Clerk Catherine Kenworthy.
Current council member Tom Moeller has not filed for re-election, she said.
David Perry is seeking the third Oskaloosa City Council seat, she said.
Registered voters in Lecompton and Oskaloosa can cast their ballots from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at their city halls on Tuesday. McLouth voters can elect city leaders between the same hours at the McLouth Community Center.
The three positions in each of the three cities are for two-year terms.
