City Council Elections

Polls opened at 6 a.m. today and will close at 7 p.m.  Light turnout expected.  If it is similar to 2009, Jackson County will only see about 16% of eligible voters heading to the polls.   That seems reasonable, given  no mayoral election to pull people out and not of the city council members have particularly generated much enthusiasm. 

I expect Lee Fronabarger to get re-elected, since incumbents usually are.  Of the two remaining seats, Carolin Harvey should take one of them, based on her service with the Planning Commission and reputation.  The last open seat is a tossup, though Brent Ritzel and Jessica Bradshaw have worked hardest to get it.
