As of the noon deadline on Friday, March 2, eight candidates turned in their nomination petitions and had them verified.
Of those eight candidates, incumbent Mayor Patricia Means is seeking re-election as mayor. She is the only candidate running for mayor.
Incumbents seeking re-election to the Board of Trustees are Nelson Cederberg, Michael Meskel and Nancy Sturgill.
Newcomers seeking a seat on the board include Ray Hanson (Hanson has served on the board before.), Dayton Myers, Jr., Ken Simpson and Curtis Williams.
Early Monday morning, March 5, under the watchful eye of town clerk Darlyn Novakovich and others, one of Cedaredge's favorite sons, Roy Martin, randomly drew the candidate's names from a wicker basket to determine the order in which the candidates' names will appear on the April 3 ballot. The names will appear on the ballot in this order: Dayton Myers, Jr., Nelson Cederberg, Ken Simpson, Curtis Williams, Ray Hanson, Michael Meskel and Nancy Sturgill.
According to Delta County election clerk Sharon Erickson, mail ballots will be sent out on Wednesday, March 14, and must be returned (not just postmarked) to the Delta County Clerk and Recorder Office, located at 501 Palmer Street, Delta, no later than 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, in order to be counted.blog comments powered by Disqus
