Contenders for Englewood municipal office and for school board
can now take the next steps to be officially on the ballot by
circulating the required nominating petitions.
Englewood voters will be asked to elect three residents to city
council, one as a municipal judge and three residents to the school
While declared candidates cannot circulate nominating petitions,
the field remains open and the only deadline to declare candidacy
is the deadline for filing completed nominating petitions.
Nominating petitions became available in the city clerk’s office
Aug. 4 for the candidates for city council and municipal judge. To
get on the November ballot, an at-large candidate an individual
must collect at least 50 signatures from Englewood residents who
are registered voters. The same is true for municipal judge
candidates. The candidates seeking to represent a district must
collect signatures of registered Englewood voters who live in that
district. The completed petitions must be returned to the clerk’s
office not later than 5 p.m. Aug. 24.
The school superintendent’s administrative assistants had
nominating petitions available on the morning of Aug. 5. School
board candidates must collect the signatures of at least 50
Englewood residents who are registered voters to get on the
November ballot. The completed petitions must be returned to the
superintendent’s administrative assistant not later than 4 p.m.
Two current council members, Wayne Oakley and Jim Woodward, have
announced they will see another term. The third incumbent, John
Moore, cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
However, residents have filed affidavits declaring candidacy so
there are races for all the city council seats. Richard Gillit has
announced he’ll oppose Oakley for the District 4 seat and Matthew
Crabtree is challenging Woodward for the at-large post. A trio of
residents, Jerry Furman, Doug Cohn and Linda Olson, have declared
themselves candidates to replace Moore as District 2 council
representative. Incumbent Vince Atencio has announced his intention
to see reelection as municipal judge.
In the school board race, all three incumbents, Heather Hunt,
Scott Gorsky and Michelle Gonzales, are all eligible to run for
re-election but have not voiced a decision on the issue yet. The
school superintendent has requested all three incumbents make their
candidacy plans known at the Aug. 4 school board meeting. While
several other residents have indicated interest, no one has
officially declared candidacy so far.
