Two more candidates file for Baldwin City Council
Two more candidates have filed for Baldwin City Council positions, bringing the total to four.
Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said Friday that Bonnie Plumberg and Russ Gill filed for council. They join Dan Broers and Rick Gere. All four are newcomers to Baldwin City politics.
Shew said that Baldwin City’s filings are ahead of other cities.
“Most of the activity in the county seems to be happening down around Baldwin right now,” he said.
Those four candidates will be vying for two seats on the council vacated by Amy Cleavinger and Doyle Jardon. Both council members have indicated they will not seek re-election.
There have also been three people file for the mayor’s position. They are incumbent Gary Walbridge. Council Member Ken Wagner and one-time Council Member George McCrary.
All three incumbents on the Baldwin School Board have filed for re-election. They are Ande Parks, Ruth Barkley and Bill Busby. No one else has filed.
The deadline to file for both school board and city council is noon Tuesday. No exceptions, Shew has said.
