Long time Lincoln City resident and former Lincoln City City Councilor Wes Ryan has filed for election to the city council again. He’s likely to win because he’s the only one who filed for the seat being vacated by Ward 1 City Councilor Alex Ward. Ward declined to run for election citing a need to spend more time on his business.
Ryan has a long history in Lincoln City as a city planning commissioner and who also has a long career serving on committees dealing with public transit. Mr. Ryan also currently serves on Lincoln City’s room tax advisory committee which recommends to the city council how the town’s hotel/motel/VRD fees are spent. Mr. Ryan also has had an extensive radio announcing career in Newport, Lincoln City and in Portland.
Also running unopposed is Ward 2 City Councilor Chester Noreikas and Ward 3 City Councilor Roger Sprague. Short of a red hot write in candidate these three are likely to be filling seats on the city council after January 1st.
