It’s a bit of a jaunt to the deadline for filing for local government offices but just so ya know that there are four seats up for grabs on the Depoe Bay City Council, including the Mayor’s seat.
Terms are up for positions 4,5 and 6. Jerome Grant Position 4. Kathy Short for Position 5, and Robert Gambino, Position 6. All have come in to pick up their nomination papers which are supposed to contain the signatures of 20 registered voters of Depoe Bay endorsing their candidacy. None have returned their petitions yet, but they’ve got until August 23rd to turn them in to the City Clerk-Recorder at City Hall.
As for the Mayor’s Chair, incumbent Mayor Barbara Leff says she hasn’t been in to City Hall to pick up her nomination papers. But she quickly adds she’s hasn’t decided not to run. As stated above, she’s got until August 23rd to let us all know whether there will be a ceremonial release of holy smoke from a second floor window of her home.
