Next year's election isn't just for city mayor—candidates are gearing up for City Council races as well. Downtown and City People veteran John Stancil has begun campaigning for At-Large Seat 1.
Stancil and his wife Cynthia lived downtown and Stancil was a board member for City People, serving as vice-president. They renovated and moved into a house in Parkridge. Stancil serves on the Historic Zoning Commission and is active in Knox Heritage.
There will be three at-large seats on the ballot next year as well as the 5th District seat now held by term-limited Bob Becker. Joe Bailey, Marilyn Roddy, and Chris Woodhull are term-limited in at-large seats. Roddy is running for mayor.
In other 2011 election news, former Councilman Rob Frost—who has been publicly considering a run for mayor for months now—filed paperwork to name campaign treasurers on Tuesday, the first step on the electoral path.
