City nomination papers available

ELLSWORTH — Along with choosing a president and members of Congress, voters also will elect six municipal officials when they head to the voting booth in November.

There are two City Council seats up for grabs as well as two seats each on the Ellsworth Public Library Board of Trustees and the School Board. All of the available positions are three-year terms set to expire in November 2023.

The seats are held, respectively, by councilors Dale Hamilton and John Moore, School Board members Rob A. Hudson and Brenda Thomas and trustees Ann Dyer and Spencer Patterson King.

Nomination papers became available on Aug. 10 and must be returned to City Hall on or before Sept. 18 at 5 p.m. City Clerk Heidi-Noël Grindle said it is helpful to have papers returned as soon as possible and asks that residents call 669-6604 to schedule a time to pick papers up.

To run for any of the six seats, an Ellsworth resident must gather signatures of between 50 and 100 registered voters in Ellsworth.

Election Day this year falls on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
