Four City Council positions are up for election in November, and all four incumbents are seeking re-election and face challengers.
The last day to file paperwork for a candidate was Friday, Aug. 10, and the ballots are set. Voters will select three candidates to four-year terms and one candidate to a two-year term. All incumbents eligible to run have decided to seek re-election.
In the race for three four-year council seats, there are six candidates, three of them incumbents. The incumbents include Marie Blankley, Dion Bracco and Peter Leroe-Muñoz. The other three candidates who have decided to run for four-year terms are Reid Lerner, Tim Renggli and Tom Fischer, current chair for the Gilroy Planning Commission.
For the two-year term there are three candidates running: current council member Daniel Harney, Carol Marques and Peter Fleming. Marques is currently a member of the Gilroy Parks and Recreation Commission.
