The Lineup

After dealing with election stuff since April, this writer managed to mix up the City Council candidates last week.

The League of Women Voters forum article has been corrected.

Those who filed in April for the 1st Ward seat are incumbent Democrat Rayland Van Blake and Republican Arlington Johnson.

Incumbent Democrat Rashid Burney and Republican Angela Perun filed in April for the 2nd & 3rd Ward at-large seat.

Winners will serve four-year terms.

Due to the sudden death of City Council President Ray Blanco on July 28, the Citywide at-large seat became vacant. The City Council chose Harold Gibson from three Democratic nominees to serve until the general election. Those who filed by a Sept. 20 deadline for the balance of Blanco's term are Gibson, Republican Deborah Dowe and Independent Robert Edwards.

Polls open Tuesday at 6 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Your polling place is printed on your sample ballot. Unofficial results will be given Tuesday night and official results will be released Monday by Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi.
