Wyandotte Preparing for 2013 Local Election

With this year’s presidential election now over, the city of Wyandotte is looking to its May 7, 2013 local election.

On the ballot next year will be the offices of mayor, assessor, treasurer and city clerk, as well as six City Council seats. The person elected for each office will serve a four-year term.

For those interested in running for one of the seats, the deadline to file with the City Clerk’s office is Dec. 4.

If enough people decide to run, a primary election would be held Feb. 26 to decide who appears on the ballot, Deputy City Clerk Maria Johnson said.

In Wyandotte, mayor and City Council are subject to a limit of three consecutive terms. Wyandotte City Clerk William Griggs said the only person affected by term limits is current Councilman Todd Browning, who began his third term in 2009.

Griggs said Browning has filed to run for treasurer in the 2013 election.

As of Monday, Griggs said three current officials had filed to run for re-election. Mayor Joseph Peterson, along with council members Sheri Sutherby-Fricke and Dan Galeski, already plan to take part in the 2013 election, he said.

Johnson said there are currently no proposals or charter amendments scheduled to be on next year’s ballot.
