A dozen candidates file for Georgetown mayor, city council races
The field is now set for the race for Georgetown mayor and three expiring city council seats.
The filing deadline passed at noon Thursday and there will be party primaries on June 11 to narrow the field of candidates.
In the race for mayor, incumbent Jack Scoville will face City Council member Rudolph Bradley and newcomer Marty Tennant in the Democratic primary.
There will also be a Republican primary in the race for mayor. Those candidates are Michael Miller and Richard Powers.
In the race for the three expiring council seats, incumbents Jeanette Ard and Brendon Barber are seeking reelection. In the Democratic primary they will face newcomers Hobson Henry Milton and Doris Simmons.
On the Republican ticket, only three candidates filed so no GOP primary will be needed. In November, incumbent Paige Sawyer will be on the ballot along with Carol Jayroe and Ed Kimbrough.
