Time is ticking to make the City Council election ballot

Jon Hutchinson
Staff Reporter

COTTONWOOD -- At least five people have pulled applications to seek election for Cottonwood City Council in the new term. The deadline for filing the paperwork expires Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 5 p.m.

Three council seats are to be elected in during the primary election, and perhaps, general election in 2013.

Seats currently held by Vice-Mayor Karen Pfeifer, and Council members Linda Norman and Tim Elinski are to be elected. All three of the councilors have picked up the needed paperwork to seek re-election.

In addition, potential candidates also include Randy Garrison, formerly of the Cottonwood Oak Creek School Board and former council member Darold Smith. Both have availed themselves of election packets.

So far, no packets have been returned to the Clerk's office.

In order to qualify for the ballot, a potential candidate must secure a minimum of 72-petition signatures and also provide financial documentation. Candidates must be 18-years of ago and also be a voter, registered within the city limits of Cottonwood, Arizona.

The Primary Election will be held March 12. The General Election, if needed, will be held May 21.

The last day to register for the election is Feb 11. In 2011, one-third of the 4891 registered voters

For more information contact City Clerk Marianne Jiménez at 340-2727.
