Ward 1 Special Election - February 9, 2021

Special Election for Term Beginning March 2021 

There is a Special Election that will occur on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 for residents that live in Ward 1. Ward 1 is located (generally) on the north east side of the City. As background, Councilmember Nadine Heinrich, who represented the City in Ward 1, resigned from the Council, effective July 14, 2020. As a result of the vacancy in the Ward 1 office, and because more than 365 days remain in the term of the vacated office, pursuant to City Charter requirement, the City Council directed that a special election be held in Ward 1. The term of this office runs through January 2, 2023. Due to State Statutes dictating uniform election dates for Special Elections, the first authorized date for a Special Election is Tuesday, February 9, 2021. Candidates listed on the ballot are listed alphabetically, as follows: Jane Covart and Ryan Heineman.
