During the work session on Thursday, Jan 12, following the decision made during a special meeting to declare trustee Clayton Ryan's seat on the Cedaredge Board of Trustees vacant, thus leaving five vacancies on the Board (four trustees and one for mayor), the trustees focused their discussion on the upcoming April 3 election, and the requirements for being a candidate to the Board of Trustees.
According to the Cedaredge Home Rule Charter, to be eligible for office, candidates must be at least 18 years old, a resident of Cedaredge for at least 12 months within the town as of the date of election, and during his or her entire tenure in office, and a qualified elector of the town.
Candidates must also pick up and have their nomination petitions signed by at least 25 residents who are registered electors of the Town of Cedaredge.
According to Cedaredge town clerk Darlyn Novakovitch, these requirements apply to all seeking a position on the town council, including those trustees seeking re-election. Nomination signatures will also need to be validated by Novakovich before a candidate's name can appear on the ballot.
Nomination petitions can be picked up no sooner than Monday, Feb. 13, and returned no later than noon, on Friday, March 2.blog comments powered by Disqus
