Petitions to run for Mt. Carmel mayor and city commissioner in next April’s election have been available for just one week, but the election seems to be already drawing quite a bit of interest.
At the conclusion of last night’s city council meeting, city clerk Rudy Witsman said petitions have been picked up so far by Joe Judge and Bill Hudson for mayor and Justin Dulgar, Eric Ikemire, and Donnie Banks for commissioner. All four commissioner seats and mayor will be on the ballot next April 2nd.
The filing period for petitions is December 10th through 17th. Petitions can be picked up at City Hall.
