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.

Zimmerman Mayor and City Council

Zimmerman Mayor and City Council

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.
