for Silverton ballot
Silverton Town Clerk Brian Carlson says nomination petitions submitted by 10 candidates for Town Council have been accepted, as well as two candidates for mayor.
“I have reviewed nomination petitions, and have found none to be deficient,” Carlson said.
The following candidates have been found qualified for the April 3 ballot:
For town trustee positions: Kevin Baldwin, Tracy Boeyink, Gary Davis, Mark Garvin, Matt Gotthainer, Malcolm MacDougall, Cassandra Papp, Barbara Renowden, and two incumbents, John Schertz and David Zanoni.
Three town trustee seats will be filled in this election. Voters can choose up to three candidates.
For mayor, Jim Lindaman and Chris Tookey are on the ballot. The election this year will be via a mail-in ballot.
“I plan to have ballots ready for voting and mailing on Monday, March 12,” Carlson said. “This will change only if there is a delay with my printer in Texas.”
Ballots must be returned to Town Hall by 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 3.
