Five more may run for city council
Three council seats will open up in April, and none of the incumbents—Paul Williams, Tim Wellnitz and Craig DeGarmo—are seeking re-election.
Candidates were allowed to start circulating nomination papers Saturday, City Clerk Jean Wulf said. To get their names on the ballot, candidates must collect 200 to 400 valid signatures from Janesville residents.
The five new people circulating papers are:
-- Kevin Bishop, 49, of 1602 Liberty Lane, an assembler at Fairbanks Morse Engine.
-- K. Andreah Briarmoon, 55, of 339 S. Locust St., a real estate and investments salesperson at Briarmoon Enterprises.
-- Richard Ellingson, 62, of 17 S. Atwood Ave. He lists his occupation as retired.
-- Billy R. McCoy, no age given, of 1326 Putnam Ave. He also lists his occupation as retired.
-- Yuri D. Rashkin, 32, of 226 Forest Park Blvd., owner of Service First Mortgage. He also is the husband of Janesville School Board member Amy Rashkin.
Nomination papers are due at the city clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Jan. 2.
