Nine Alamo residents declare candidacy


Nine people have thrown their hat into the ring to run for Alamo town council, just 24 hours before the deadline.

The council election is March 3, corresponding with the vote on whether or not to incorporate the census-designated area of Alamo.

The nine candidates are Karl Niyati, Joseph Alexander Rubay, Vishwas D. More, Stephan Alan Mick, Vicki Lee Koc, Randall Evan Nahas, Karen E. McPherson, Diane M. Barley and Bob Connelly.

Twelve others who have taken out papers but had not filed as of 5 p.m. Thursday are Dennis Eugene Johnson, Lawrence G. Kaye, Edward M. Chiverton, Tejbir S. Khanna, David Glenn Bowlby, Tina Schumann, Bradley Harold Waite, Kevin G. Morrow, Roger Floyd Smith, Grace Lorraine Schmidt, Bradley C. Stribling and John W. Morrow.

In the March election, if incorporation passes, the two candidates with the most votes will serve four-year council terms; the three candidates with the next most votes will serve two-year terms. The council members will choose among themselves for the first mayor, which will be a rotating position.

The deadline to file papers to run for the position is 5 p.m. Dec. 5, then Dec. 6-15 is the public review period for the candidates' statements of qualifications. On Dec. 11 the Secretary of State will conduct a drawing of the letters of the alphabet to determine the order in which candidates will appear on the ballot.

Write-in candidates can take out papers from Jan. 5-Feb. 17. Absentee voting will begin Feb. 2.

WHERE can the public review the candidate's statements?
