City election races are set

ELLSWORTH — City and School Board races will be contested this year, although not quite as hotly as it looked at the outset. Four residents, Dale Hamilton (current chairman), Gene C. Lyons, Bronson Platner and Edmund J.M. “Mike” Springer, will be running for two council seats that are being vacated. Those seats are held by Hamilton and Councilor John Moore.

Five residents, Elizabeth Alteri, Kelli J. Casey, Joel R. Horne, Rob A. Hudson and Kelly J. McKenney, will be on the ballot for the School Board, which also has two available seats. The seats being vacated are held by Hudson and Brenda Thomas.

On the library front, Kathleen B. Cravens and Spencer Patterson King will be running for two open seats on the Board of Trustees. The seats being vacated are held by King and Ann Dyer.

All of the six seats have three-year terms set to expire in November 2023.

Election Day this year is Tuesday, Nov. 3.
