I come to you a day late but nonetheless with big news: Yesterday shortly after noon I turned in my nomination petitions, officially claiming my place on the 2013 ballot. Thanks to everyone who came forward to sign and nominate me to be your voice on the council.
As of this writing to the best of my knowledge I'm the only candidate on the ballot. Our current alderman (Jim Clemons) hasn't announced if he plans to seek re-election, and no other new challengers have come forward.
I'm excited to have this hurdle behind me so the campaign can move forward. Now, we wait to see what happens next.
