The final deadline for candidates to file for the Nov. 5
election looms and soon we’ll know who wants to run for all the mayoral,
council, township trustee and school board races.
Contests will take shape after the Wednesday 4 p.m.
deadline for candidates to file their petitions to run for office and appear on
the Nov. 5 ballot.
Candidates involved in races in Eastlake, Wickliffe along
with mayoral candidates in Mentor-on-the-Lake filed previously as respective
charters stipulated a July 19 deadline. Those races are set.
We already know the winner of one race with Judge John Trebets
unopposed for re-election as he was the only candidate who filed before the
Feb. 6 deadline to file for Mentor Municipal Court judge.
For the other races, will there be any surprises including
long-time officials who don’t file for re-election?
Perhaps there might be two new trustees in Painesville
Township as neither Jeanette Crislip
nor Jim Falvey
have filed to run.
Might there be some potential challengers who emerge to
run for Mentor Council at large? Three seats will be on the ballot.
You never know what will happen when it comes to the
filing deadline, but these questions will be answered in just a few days.
