BELOIT

Three incumbents are running uncontested for seats on the seven-member Beloit City Council.

Clinton Anderson (I)

Job: Volunteer coordinator/shelter advocate at YWCA Rock County.

Community service: Hockey coach for Beloit Youth Hockey Association.

Elected posts: Current member of Beloit City Council.

Major campaign issues: “The vacancy rate for housing is incredibly low, and the number of available affordable housing (units) in Beloit is low. That, and the restrictions the state puts on municipalities for rental inspections makes some housing unlivable. This leads to the homeless crisis in Beloit. The city must partner with service providers in the area to help keep people off the streets.”
