Zimmerman mayor’s race will feature three candidates; Write-in candidate needed for one seat

Five people filed affidavits for candidacy for Zimmerman’s four elected offices that voters will fill Nov. 4. The deadline was 5 p.m. Aug. 12 and was followed by a two-day period in which candidates may still withdraw.

Incumbent Dave Earenfight and challengers Jan Nicodemus and Dave Horvath will run for the mayor’s seat, a two-year term. Incumbent Tony Brisbin will run unopposed for a four-year council seat. Incumbent Beth Merwin will run unopposed to fill a vacated council seat for two years, until the term naturally expires at the end of 2016.

Zimmerman City Clerk and Treasurer Kary Tillmann said a write-in candidate may fill the other open seat, a four-year term. If there is not a write-in candidate who would accept the position, the city would fill the seat by declaring a vacancy and holding a special election early in 2015.
