Write-in files for Morenci mayor 9.16.09

Posted in 2009 Sept.

The city ballot won’t look any different on Nov. 3, but there is another declared candidate for Morenci mayor.

Jason Bryant filed as a write-in candidate for mayor last week. By making an official declaration of intent, any votes cast for Bryant will be tallied. Write-in votes for undeclared candidates are not counted.

Residents have until 4 p.m. on the Friday before the election to declare candidacy as a write-in, said city clerk-administrator Renée Schroeder.

Bryant formerly served as a city council member but resigned due to his work schedule.

Voters will also choose four council members in November. Current councilors Tracy Schell and Greg Braun filed to seek four-year terms. Jason Cook filed to fill the remaining two years of a four-year term to which he was appointed last year. Joseph Varga filed for a four-year term to fill the seat that will be vacated by Pennington who is running for mayor.
