Vacancy on City Council – Ward 3 Seat

Melody Shryock, Councilmember of Ward 3, resigned from the City Council effective May 1, 2019. This created a vacancy in the Ward 3 Council position. The City's Charter directs how vacancies on the City Council are filled. If there are 365 days or more left in the term of the vacated office, a special election is required to fill that vacancy. In this case, Ms. Shryock's term ends January 2, 2023; therefore, a special election is necessary. Two candidates filed for this seat, so only a General election will be required. The General election will take place on November 5, 2019.
