Great news! All wards will have some choice this year…
Below are the candidates for each ward:
Ward 1 (2 races)
My initial thoughts on the races are as follows:
Ward 2,3,4,6 – I believe the incumbents will most likely keep their seats in all these wards as they have quite strong support in their wards. Shannon has a good chance of also keeping her seat, but I think that a strong candidate could beat her.
At this time, I think that Dick Bove would be the best choice in Ward 1. For my ward, Ward 7, I would not be surprised if there is a run-off between Gutchell and Blais. I also believe that Ellie Blais has a good chance of winning back her seat in Ward 7.
These are just my initial thoughts and may change as the election progresses.
