KEYSER - Keyser's city election for mayor and two seats on the five-member council is Tuesday, June 12, and features one of the larger fields of candidates in recent years.
Those running are:
Mayor: Incumbent council member Isaac “Sonny” Alt, Brenda Gank Kitzmiller, incumbent council member Eric Murphy and Damon Tillman.
Incumbent mayor Ed Miller chose not to run for re-election.
Council: Glenn “Sonny” Gank, Herman Judy, incumbent Jennifer Junkins, William Sekella-Wahl, and William Zacot.
The candidates will be vying for the seats currently occupied by Junkins and Alt, so voters will be choosing two on the ballot.
Should council member Eric Murphy be elected to the mayoral position, the council will have to appoint someone to fill his vacant seat.
Mark Tranum’s name remains on the ballot, but he withdrew from the race after the deadline to have his name removed.
The candidate chosen as mayor will serve a four-year term, and each of the two candidates selected to serve on the council will also serve for four years.
