In Mason, incumbent Marty Yeager and Ralph Ross are on the ballot for council seats, while Jerry Tucker is seeking election as mayor. Councilwoman Sarah Stover also has filed as a write-in candidate.
According to Mayor Mindy Kearns, no one has filed for recorder, and two open council seats remain.
“Since there will be three on council, that will constitute a quorum. If no one else runs, the (council) members can appoint two council members and a recorder,” Kearns said.
Election plans are progressing in Leon as well. According to Mayor Bruce Riffle, incumbents Crystal Cash, Terri Rymer and Greg Barker are seeking re-election for their council seats. Councilman Adam Null, who was appointed to fill a vacant council position earlier this year, also will be seeking election for council. Renae Riffle, who currently serves as the town’s events coordinator, is seeking election as recorder.
Riffle said he will seek election as mayor after being appointed to fill the current term following the former mayor’s resignation. There currently are no write-in candidates. For more information, call 304-812-7070.
