No contenders yet for 4 Prescott council posts


No candidates have officially signed up to run for four open City Council seats in Prescott even though nominating packets have been available to prospective candidates for about four weeks.

Prescott City Clerk Lynn Mulhall tells The Daily Courier that only one person has picked up a nominating packet from her office and that person isn't yet an official candidate because she hasn't submitted the required paperwork.

The positions that will be up for election are those currently held by Mayor Marlin Kuykendall and council members Al Carlow, Steve Blair and Len Scamardo.

Prospective candidates may file their completed paperwork between April 29 and May 29.

The primary is set for Aug. 27, and the general election is set for Nov. 5.
