3 vying to be Sylvania mayor
Sylvania will have a new mayor in 2016.
Whether the winner of that post is one who was a veteran of the city council or a person new to local government will remain to be seen.
Sylvania Mayor Margaret Evans decided to not qualify for re-election.
Preston Dees, Roger E. Cleland and Arnie Lerma did qualify for the mayoral race by the Sept. 4 deadline with city hall.
Incumbents Joe Cleland, Ben Mercer and Ben A. Smith qualified to remain their existing seats on the city council.
However, Ken Austin Jr. also qualified for a council seat. Three spots are available in the four-man race.
Clint Williams, who was appointed to fill the seat of Dees when Dees chose to resign to run for mayor, will run unopposed in a special election.
In Hiltonia, incumbent Gerry D. Forehand will run unopposed for mayor.
Four qualified for three council member spots in Hiltonia.
Incumbents June W. Bragg and Eddie Walker Sr. qualified, while newcomers Matthew R. Forehand and Mary Ella Williams also qualified for the race.
In Newington, Alex Mock will face incumbent Jean Perkins for the Council Post 3 seat.
Joy A. Evans will face incumbent Rebecca Wildi for Council Post 5.
Incumbent Dustin Hutto will run unopposed for the Council Post 4 seat.
In Oliver, three qualified for three council member seats. Early Mae Milton, Marvin Mock and Shontae Jones Roper qualified.
In Rocky Ford, two qualified for two council seats. Qualifying were Jane L. Rahn and Bennie E. Daughtry.
