Updated: Elk River will have a primary in Ward 3 council race

Four people are running for an open Ward 3 seat on the Elk River City Council.

They are Chad Wurm, Ryan Holmgren, Michael McDonough and Barbara Burandt.

Because there are more than two candidates, there will be a primary election held on Aug. 14. The top two finishers will advance to the general election in November.

In the other city race, Council Member Matt Westgaard is running unopposed in Ward 2.

Filings closed June 5.

Council Member Jerry Gumphrey is not running for re-election.
