Monday Is Deadline For Candidates to File For Open Seats on Salem and Centralia City Council

By Bruce Kropp

We'll know by late Monday afternoon who will all be seeking the two open city council seats in Salem and Centralia. The deadline to file petitions for the April ninth election is five pm at the city clerks office in both cities.

In Salem, six candidates have filed petitions so far. They are incumbent Kip Meador, former City Manager Thomas Christie, along with Jane Gaston, Jim Baity, Joan Kless and Sue Morgan. The other incumbent councilman, Steve Huddlestun, has a petition but as of last week would not say if he would actually file them to get on the ballot. Sherrill McLean also has a petition out.

In Centralia, four candidates have filed for the two open council spots. They are incumbent Howard Jones along with Jason Hunter, Joshua Qualls, and Warren Hynes. Three others still have petitions out. They are incumbent Doug Krutsinger as well as William Harrell and David Miller. There needs to be nine candidates for a primary election to be held to narrow the field. At this point, it doesn't appear either city will have that many candidates.
