Tis’ the season – to file paperwork to run for public office. Several Findlay City Council members have taken out petitions to run for re-election. So far it appears incumbents Grant Russel, Tom Shindledecker, John Harrington, Randy Van Dyne, and Anne Spence are all running unopposed. Council president Jim Slough also is unopposed at this point.
One contested race is developing in the sixth ward. Jim Niemeyer and Christina Muryn have both taken out petitions to run. Niemeyer was appointed to the post after Andy Douglas stepped down earlier this year.

The deadline to file to run in the May primary is February 4.
